Neil Haynes: Owner and Master Luthier

Neil has been Crafting Musical instruments for over 20 years. He went to college to learn the woodworking trade and found his skills lay in fine precision wood working. He became an excellent cabinet-maker priding himself on perfection.

His passion for music had been apparent since he was six years old when he started playing instruments, and has remained with him ever since. He is a keen musician and also has an exceptional ear for music and tone. Combining his love for wood and woodworking with his passion for music was the logical progression for Neil.

Neil has worked alongside other talented luthiers over the years and has been honing his skills making many fine instruments.

Neil was in a great position to set up Guitar and Bass Build and share his instruments with the wider public – even the world!

Nov-Dec 2020- we're busy taking a few more pictures of our showroom, team and workshop! We'd say we're photo-shy, but the truth is, we're busy crafting!
