About Solwayer Guitars

Solwayer Guitars is a small design / manufacturing business, based in northern Cumbria in the UK, batch-building solid-body electric guitars to our own classic designs.

We use traditional craft-based techniques and processes - all work is carried out by hand or with small workshop machines.  We do not use computer-aided building techniques.  We see ourselves as part of the UK's long and honourable craft manufacturing tradition.

Our focus is on our guitars, which are simple and straightforward in concept.  We source top-quality woods, pickups and hardware, we have a meticulous approach to construction, and we employ traditional finishing techniques, to produce guitars that are old-school workhorses with class.

Every guitar we make receives our undivided care and attention, and each leaves us fully set-up and ready for you to plug in and play.
