Roger Williams - Guitar Maker

Roger Williams provides a very professional service in making Handmade Classical, Flamenco and Acoustic Guitars, as well as restoring and repairing guitars.

He has worked with his hands, at various crafts, for most of his life both as a hobby and for a livelihood. He purchased the materials for his first guitar in 1970 and since then he has restored, repaired and built many hundreds of guitars and string instruments for discerning professional and amateur musicians.

Classical GuitarHis handmade Classical guitars are based on principles established by the early Spanish master Antonio de Torres, refined by the German maker Herman Hauser and latterly developed by existing makers Jose Romanillos and Kevin Aram.  His Flamenco guitars are influenced by Marcel Barbero and Manuel Reyes.  Roger's guitars also incorporate innovative features of his own which employ some of the latest advances in acoustic research and instrument dynamics.  His special finger-style acoustic guitar , designed and built for Gordon Giltrap , follows the same design and construction philosophy as his Classical guitars, resulting in a very light and responsive instrument.  His work emphasises elegance and simplicity of design, quality of materials and precision of workmanship, resulting in the highest quality sound and playability.

Every guitar that Roger builds is special and individual.  Sometimes it will be built with a specific customer in mind; at other times he will build just for the sheer pleasure of designing and developing something new and beautiful.
