John Whiteside
Media: Wood Musical Instruments

I make acoustic steel-string fingerstyle guitars, custom-built for the player, using designs and tonewoods that suit their personal playing style and, if they sing, their voice. Custom building means that I can make the body size, nut width, neck thickness and contour, and string spread to suit their specific body and hand dimensions and level of technical skill. The guitar fits like a tailor-made suit.

Although my guitars are physically beautiful, a great deal of my skill goes into insuring the best possible sound. Lighter construction and hand-tuned plates and braces insure a vibrance, shimmer, complexity, and depth of sound that cannot be matched by factory-made guitars.
