AC Guitars

AC Guitars is a small, one-man shop based in Moffat, South West Scotland; I am the one man. In June 2006, with the first commissioned order arriving from Dave McDonald of Toronto, AC Guitars officially came into being.

Prior to that, I was building instruments for about 2 years, mostly out of boredom. Illness had left me unable to do my usual work, but as I recovered, I had time on my hands. I’d played bass and various other instruments for years, and fostered a real interest in recording and all the equipment it brings with it. So, I decided to build a guitar.

I had several high-end basses so it never entered my head to build a bass. My first attempt was a hollow bodied Telecaster, which provided a steep learning curve and a good deal of swearing. On completion I was fairly pleased; it made a noise, it stayed in tune, and from a distance it looked OK. But my satisfaction only lasted a week before I decided I could do better. Happily, it’s all been downhill from there.
