My regular series highlighting the great work of some of the small luthiers continues today with Feline Guitars. I was checking out a few of the websites to see who I should feature today, and even though I mainly focus on the guitars that these luthiers build, Feline Guitars caught my eye with a particularly interesting article on a repair that was done on a Les Paul of Richie Faulkner, who plays with Judas Priest.
Feline Guitars is comprised of one guy, based in Croydon which is an old stamping-ground of mine as my father used to run a small chain of florist shops there, up until 1993, so I used to spend a fair amount of my holidays hanging around in the shops, particularly during busy periods like Christmas. He does a lot of repair work as well as building custom guitars, and from what I hear he has a fine reputation.
Here are a couple of examples of his guitars. You can see more on his Gallery page. He also specialises in making left-handed guitars.
