I started Giffin Guitars in England, where it existed in various forms from the late 60’s up until the mid 80’s. During those years I was fortunate enough to hook up with a lot of very good musicians. This gave me the opportunity and encouragement to design and build guitars that became widely accepted in England at that time. I worked in Los Angeles up until June of 2004 building small quantities of hand made guitars from my home.

In July 2004, I moved once again, and am now operating from Portland, Oregon.
I continue to maintain, as always, the very highest hand built standards for my instruments. I feel that my hands-on approach to guitar building still gives me the greatest satisfaction, and it allows me to produce unique and individual instruments.
Roger Giffin is on the short list of builders who have made guitars for some amazing luminaries in the guitar world. Clapton, Page, Townsend and many more… I personally play his guitars and am a big fan!
