Chris Larkin Custom Guitars
Chris Larkin

Chris Larkin made his first guitar in 1977. He combined guitar and furniture making for a while and became a full time luthier in 1984. From the beginning he has used his own designs whenever possible and there are about 800 of his instruments sold worldwide. He is lucky enough to work to order directly for the customer and some of his customers have weird ideas!
Entirely self taught he has used local woods whenever possible from the beginning and was honoured to be part of The Leonardo Guitar Research Project as a luthier partner.

The thing that makes the HGGS so special is that the exhibitors are treated equally – everybody has the same space. Being seen with the best in the world is an honour. Meeting up with your heroes and mates is the icing on the cake. What’s not to like?
