Edward Jones started his musical instrument profession as a student to the highly respected harpsichord maker, Robert Goble. During the six years he spent with Goble, Edward Jones constructed instruments which include the harpsichord, clavichord, spinet, octavina and the virginal.
In 1973 he was invited to continue his studies with the world famous guitar maker, David J Rubio. With Rubio, he specialised in instruments of both the guitar and lute family, which he continued to construct for Rubio until 1979, when he left to open his own studio in the North Oxfordshire village of Steeple Aston.
With this experience, Edward Jones now has a considerable reputation which has resulted in a world-wide clientele with his instruments being played in over 20 different countries.
