2009 marks 31 years since Brian Kingston has been building guitars and the mission remains the same – to build guitars that are alive, effortless to play and inspirational to the player. His 120 year old farmhouse, in which he constructs his guitars, shares a property line with the world famous PEI Cavendish National Park, with its miles of sand dunes and beaches. Brain says “I share a special â€œsense of placeâ€ that people from all Islands know and as such am pleased to name my 17â€ archtop model â€œCavendish Roadâ€â€¦after the road at the end of our lane”.
I first saw Brian Kinston's guitars at the Montreal Guitar Festival. I could immediately sense the quality and the first few notes told me he knows how to get tone from a carved instrument. Kingston guitars offer players a lively, responsive feel far superior to factory brand guitars. Only time, effort and experience can pull this much tone from simple wood.
