About Russ

For over 20 years, I have been handcrafting Resonator guitars in my Nelson, New Zealand workshop and delivering them to guitarists around the world, USA, Japan, Australia, UK, Canada, Korea and New Zealand.

As a young lad I was inspired by my father and his workshop. I grew up helping him restore vintage motorcycles and cars. From making parts to motor rebuilds – we did it all. This gave me appreciation of design, tradition and good workmanship. Qualities I apply to the instruments I make today.

I prefer to build a small number of the highest quality guitars than a larger number of lesser quality.
