custom handbuilt guitars,
by Ed Bond
I have been making acoustic
guitars since 1995, and I have been available as a custom luthier
since 2002. Since then I have completed upwards of eighty instruments.
I have a deep and extensive background in the instrument manufacturing
process, having served in one of Canada's larger guitar manufacturing
facilities for over 17 years.
Each Tinker Guitar is
built from solid woods in a climate controlled workshop. I use no
shell, preferring to let the natural beauty of the wood speak for
itself. I use a combination of deflection and resonance testing
to ensure that every guitar I build is loud, full, lively,and responsive,
no matter what the size or woods used. I can tailor a guitar to
your specific needs as a player. I use a compound radius fingerboard
to ensure excellent playability everywhere on the neck.
Please have a look around
the site, and don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you
may have. Come back again as more content will be added soon, including
soundclips and video.
Thanks, Ed Bond
