greg-mckinnonI started playing guitar when I was 18, and played in a band for a couple of years. I didn’t push the musical envelope too far after that, just happy to be knocking around home on my 6 string acoustic.

In 1994 I started up Brookwood Furniture, a design and manufacturing business specialising in furniture made from reclaimed timbers which continues today.

I have taken what I have learnt building furniture and incorporated this into designing and building my own guitars having fallen under the Cigar Box Guitar spell.

I have made 5 guitars to see how they would play, experimenting with strings, pickups and getting the right “action’. Happy with that, I got a few more experienced players to road test them and the response was extremely encouraging.

I have now completed a second batch, so here we go! I want to get people playing them and experiencing the creative sounds they generate.

Come with me and join the 3 string revolution!
