Over the past few years, there's been a rise in the demand for unique, bespoke, high quality guitars, both electric and acoustic for the seasoned player, offering an instrument that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also a completely unique and personalised piece of gear, to fit the player's every need! We had the pleasure of welcoming one of these builder's into the shop this week, Parsons Guitars!
Established in 2019, Geraint Parsons has been building his unique instruments from his workshop, just outside of Yeovil! As a highly trained Naval Engineer, he wanted to put his skills to the test, and build something entirely from scratch, with each piece being completely unique for his customers! While speaking with him in store, you can absolutely tell he strives for perfection with his instruments, making sure every little detail is spot on before they leave his shop!
As you can see from the imagery, the model he brought in with him today, is a high performance rock machine! An awesome sand-blasted ash body, equipped with two single-coil humbuckers, with an unfinished, smooth feeling neck makes this guitar sound fantastic and a breeze to play!
We look forward to seeing what other pieces Parsons has in the pipeline and we'll be sure to update you all when the time comes! In the meantime, make sure to check out Parsons Guitars on facebook for regular updates on the builds he's working on!
