Luthiers / guitar restorers in or around London

Post by bellemeade » Wed Feb 06, 2019 10:35 am

I was wondering whether anyone could recommend a very fine luthier/guitar restorer in or around London.
In the past I have used very good luthiers in Kent or Sussex but unfortunately the they are too far.
I have important instruments which require some work so any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
If preferred you can send me a private message.
Many thanks

My list (http://jacaranda-music.com/UKGuitars.html#anchor2277331) is not very up to date but I have these. If your instruments are very significant you may have to travel.

You could try Celine Cammerlynk at luthierscorner.co.uk
She is in South London and was highly recommended by my teacher. She refretted my Bert Kwakkel, and (so I’ve heard) John Williams’ Smallman. She is very busy though, so you might have wait a while.
