From his shop in York, England Ralph Bown builds the finest instruments. Many of the finest fingerstyle guitarist in the UK choose Bown guitars.
Ralph Bown has made guitars for John Renbourn, Clive Carroll, Martin Simpson and many other premiere players. I first learned about him from Martin Simpson and was amazed by the full tone of his instruments, his attention to detail and their understated beauty. We feel very proud to be offering Ralph's instrument here in the U.S. They are very special indeed.
