John has been repairing, maintaining and customising guitars for over a decade and has studied guitar building at Crimson Guitars.
John owns over twenty guitars, although he says 'you could probably put together several more from the parts I keep'. John's most prized guitar is his 1983 Vox Custom 24, which he has blogged about here.
John has a wide musical taste and Killing Joke and King Tubby are often heard in the workshop. Lately, he has been impressed with newer bands Lower Slaughter and the excellent Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs.
John's aim in working with guitars it to make any instrument play and sound as well as it possibly can. No instrument is beyond improvement - if it can be done we'll take it on.
