- Back & Sides:
Ambridge, Simon Learn More +
My interest in guitars began back in the early 60’s with the explosion of the pop music industry. My first guitar, a cheap, burgundy coloured, acoustic f hole cutaway soon had a pickup fitted, got played endlessly and became what I recognize now as the seed of a passion which has endured to this day. Becoming a full time guitar maker coincided with my move to Devon in the southwest of England, thanks to a setting up grant from the Crafts Council of Great Britain. I was particularly honored by this grant since the selectors included Jose Romanillos, David Rubio and Paul Fischer. In 1991 I received awards from the David Canter Memorial fund and Southwest Arts. In 1995 I moved into a studio on the Dartington estate in South Devon, home of the renowned Dartington International Summer School. Although primarily self taught as a guitar maker, I am indebted to the many luthiers and guitarists who have given me advice, support and encouragement.
