Handmade Guitars & Stringed Instrument Restoration
Stringed Instrument Workshop
Established in 2001, Amos Guitars is a Melbourne based workshop, specialising in stringed instrument making & restoration. Amos guitars are individually made using aged woods, traditional methods and finishing techniques, creating instruments of original style based on historical as well as modern instruments.
The workshop is also fully equipped with specialised equipment for restoration & repair of instruments including guitars, mandolins, violin and bows & is located in the Dandenong Ranges 35 km East of Melbourne CBD. All enquiries are encouraged and workshop visits are welcome.
Making & Restoration
Spanish Style Classical Guitars
The primary focus of my guitar making is classical guitars inspired by the masters of Spanish guitar making (1860's-1960's). I use traditional techniques and designs, refined by generations of luthiers to craft guitars which aim to possess the sound, aesthetic and spirit of the old world guitars.
Part Size Student Guitars
Since 2011 I've been making scaled down classical guitars for a project known as the ‘Southern Cross Series’, created by Melbourne guitar teacher Zeah Reordan. The guitars are made of excellent grade tone woods & are proportionately correct to improve the sound & playability of small guitars for young players.
Restoration & Repair Work
I restore both bowed & plucked instruments including violins, bows, guitars & mandolins. My original trade is bow making and over the past 25 years have broadened my experience, knowledge and skills to learn to authentically restore stringed instruments and bows to original, optimum condition.
