Product Description

Richard Newman was born in 1964. He studied classical guitar in the mid 90’s under Richard Wright (now head of guitar at the Yehudi Menuhin school of music). He learnt much about tone production from his studies and set out to find a good guitar with a traditional “old world sound”. Failing to find the desirable instrument, Richard enthusiastically decided, as he had worked with wood for many years as a tree surgeon, to try to build his own guitar. Richard built a handful of guitars, and with much encouragement from players, left his job and enrolled in a full time guitar making course at the London Guildhall University in 2001. After completing the course, Richard set up a workshop in Ascot, Berkshire, where he builds around twelve guitars a year. Richard builds using very little machinery, concentrating on using traditional hand tools and glues, as he feels it is important to be in touch with the materials while maintaining control over his work. Richard has also received much guidance and advice from professional players and other makers over the years, also study many master guitars, and this has helped him evolve as a maker and produce well balanced guitars with a low body resonance and fine projection. Richard continues to create guitars with the same passion and enthusiasm as that very first build.
