Strange things are happening in the workshop! Namely basses and space ships! #friday #makingstuff #spaceship #rocket #bassguitar
I get to unclamp this today! Going to make a start on my lefty bass as well! #SB7 #customguitar #ukguitarbuilders#ukcustomguitars #boutiqueguitars#ebonywood #customguitar #handbuiltguitars #bassguitar #custombass #madeinlondon
Started a few new builds! It always amazes me how much wood and work goes in to one composite neck blank! #purpleheart #walnut #maple with grey oak highlights. #boutiqueguitars #highendguitars #rock#metal #blues #handbuiltguitars #handmade #ukcustomguitars #bespokeguitar #guitar#electricguitars #europeanguitarbuilders#made#igguitars #customguitar
Finally made a start on my exhibition basses. This is going to be the right hander, it's a smaller detail, but I've been working on tidying up my trussrod access. Pretty happy with this so far! #SB7 #customguitar #custombass #handbuiltguitars #handbuiltbasses #bassguitar #trussrodcover #walnut #mahogany #sapele
So just over a week ago my dad put together surprise (ish) party for my mum @anne.robson.790 birthday! I joined Hobs' (my business partner) classic rock band! Most of the pictures were crap, but here are some of the better ones! It was a really fun night and nice to finally use one of my guitars outside of a rehearsal room! The last one is my uncle throwing shapes. #guitar #band #classicrock #party

One of my favorite things about building through body guitars is looking at the back of the guitar and the heel, this one gives massive access to the upper frets! Thanks to @exotichardwoodsukltd for supply of the beautiful red wood that I can't remember how to spell! #SB7 #customguitar #ukguitarbuilders#ukcustomguitars #boutiqueguitars #ebonywood #ash ##ergonomicguitar #extendedrangeguitar #bespokeguitar #guitar #electricguitars #europeanguitarbuilders #made #igguitars #instagramguitar

The headstock cap is my first made from the stabilized spalted softwood. I'm super happy with how this turned out, I think the wood and all is imperfections are to beautiful to cover up, which is why I have no logo, and the same wood for the trussrod cover! #SB7 #sevenstring #extendedrangeguitar #ergonomicguitar #shredmachine #ukcustomguitars #bespokeguitar #guitar#electricguitars #europeanguitarbuilders#made #igguitars#instagramguitar #customguitar #ukguitarbuilders #highendguitars #reclaimedwood

The switch was playing up on this guitar and the customer found he was occasionally flicking the switch by accident, so I have moved it around and filled in the old slot. You can still see the old slot, but you have to be looking for it. I took the opportunity to polish the frets and take some photos! #SB3 #ukcustomguitars #ukguitarbuilders#handbuiltguitars #customguitar #guitardesign #guitarporn#ukguitarbuilders #boutiqueguitars #highendguitars #bespokeguitar #guitarrepair

In the absence of any real friends, I decided to play with myself.. Or my nearly complete 7 string, to be precise. #SB7 #sevenstring #sexyguitar #ergonomicguitar #extendedrangeguitar #boutiqueguitars #handbuiltguitars #madeinlondon #guitar#guitarporn #ukcustomguitars #beard
This Labour of love is nearly finished! This guitar is made from new, reclaimed and inherited wood, the carved yew top was laid down by my grandad, who was a house builder and occasional cabinet builder. Dated1985, the year after, he passed away and I was born, I never knew him, but grew up surrounded by his memory, so it is a lovely feeling working with something he saw value in keeping, in the hope of turning it into something one day. I don't know if he would approve of the green pickups though! #SB7 #bespokeguitar #electricguitars #7string #fretboard #boutiqueguitars #highendguitars #rock#metal #blues #handbuiltguitars #europeanguitarbuilders #guitar #ukcustomguitars #ukguitarbuilders

Woo! I'm getting slightly better at very simple inlays! Also, check out my shiny shiny frets! #SB7 #customguitar #ukguitarbuilders#ukcustomguitars #boutiqueguitars #ebonywood #yew #bubinga #maple #guitarporn #handmadeguitar #electricguitars #sexyguitar
Boom! Fret wire and partially fitted componant parts. I need to get the rest of the controls in, then on to fine sanding. Macasser ebony holds frets amazingly well! #SB7 #customguitar #ukguitarbuilders#ukcustomguitars #boutiqueguitars #ebonywood #yew #bubinga #maple #guitarporn #handmadeguitar #electricguitars #sevenstring #extendedrangeguitar
My fellow guitar builder and partner in SBC guitars has just put together this digital reverb! I've already had a play and it sounds amazing! #stompbox #effectspedals #boutiqueguitars #guitar #guitarporn

Guitars! Here are our prototype #SB7 guitars (left and center) and our larger 7.1 body shape! The 7.1 is designed for basses and extended range guitars! #customguitar #guitardesign#guitarporn #ukcustomguitars #bespokeguitar #guitar#electricguitars #europeanguitarbuilders#made #igguitars #instagramguitar #boutiqueguitars #highendguitars #rock#metal #7string #boutiqueguitars #battleofthehands #extendedrangeguitar #bassguitar
Damn! I'm so happy with this headstock! This stabilized spalted softwood cap looks great with the fretboard! #SB7 #bespokeguitar #electricguitars #7string #fretboard #headstock #boutiqueguitars #ebonywood #firewood #scotland
If you had to guess which tool sent me to hospital today for five hours, you'd guess. The chisel or knife, right? Turns out it was the wire wool. A thread got caught and sliced clean through the side of my finger. This has wiped out most of my workshop time this week, and I didn't even finish leveling the fretboard! #SB7 #customguitar #sadtimes #shithappens #macassar #ebony

I couldn't resist doing a test oil on my carved body SB7. No joking, no filter! That body top is some real old yew! #handmadeguitar #handbuiltguitars #carvedwood #yew #bubinga #maple #hickorywood #throughbodyneck #guitar #7string #boutiqueguitars #shredmachine
Prepping for a possible gig, just deciding which guitar to use, sigh, decisions decisions... #guitarproblems #handbuiltguitars #madeinlondon #guitar#guitarporn #ukcustomguitars #boutiqueguitars #bespokeguitar#electricguitars #igguitars #guitarsofinstagram
