Spotlight on Luthiers – Organic Guitars

Another post in this series finds Organic Guitars, a luthier called Duncan Wales based in Cambridgeshire who mixes “old world luthiery and modern innovation”, notably making good use of 3D CAD software and CNC machines that many individual luthiers spurn.  However he does it, he certainly makes some beautiful instruments!

Organic Guitars was founded in 2004 and seems to be quite a low-key operation, with no high-profile artists.  It looks well worth a visit, though, if you’re looking for a very stylish custom guitar.

I grew up in England, attending school in Gloucester and then reading Classics at Peterhouse, Cambridge University. After working in London for three years, I moved to Belgium in 1993 where I have lived ever since. I played the piano as a child and also started playing the guitar, but never took it seriously until 2012, thanks to Rocksmith. I've also done a lot of singing, including over 30 amateur shows. Since 2012 I have been avidly accumulating guitar-related information as well as guitars and related gear, and I decided to create this site to share some of my knowledge, experiences and opinions with anybody who might be interested.
