Hutchinson Guitar Concepts

A kind soul on the Rob Chapman Forum has recently suggested another luthier for my UK Luthiers article, and I thought this one was worthy of a blog entry.  Hutchinson Guitar Concepts is a luthier somewhere in the UK who specialises in heavily customised or modded guitars, often with Celtic or Norse themes and metallic or lava-like finishes.  His most famous customer is James Hetfield, from Metallica (you may have heard of them).  Stunning stuff, and you can see some of his guitars on his Concepts page.

The guitar in the picture below is an example of James Hutchinson’s work.  Unfortunately, this guitar was stolen from him through a scam, so if you see it please get in touch with James via his website.

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.
