Our Owner

Bill bought his first ‘serious’ acoustic more than 50 years ago (a 1967 Gibson ‘Southern Jumbo’), and has loved the sound of a well played guitar – as it is heard in all types of music – ever since! He has a passion for the sound, smell, and build of of acoustics , and  the fine tonewoods they are made from. He is down to earth and easy to talk with, and welcomes the opportunity to help you along the way on your acoustic guitar journey!
