Bailey Guitars, UK
I started making guitars at the age of 18. By 1998 I had set up my own company with partner Carol Davies, making guitars by hand in a double decker bus.
Now based in South Ayrshire, we have become one of the UK’s leading guitar makers producing up to 60 guitars a year, some acoustic, some electric, some built to a performer’s exact requirement
We also run the popular ‘Build Your Own’ Course which has enabled hundreds of complete novices to build their own dream guitars. Many shops and companies in the music industry have sent their staff to the Bailey workshop for training.
I have written books and made videos about the subject which are available on my website.
This blog is intended as a showcase for my work and as a resource for anyone wanting to build. It will contain posts about latest news, work in progress and handy tips for guitar makers.
We are proud to be the first guitar workshop in the UK powered only by solar and wind. My hobby has become generating my own power. There will be some posts on this subject too.
