Introducing David Pelter who is an outstanding luthier working from his workshop in Kirkby Lonsdale, Cumbria.

Making his first guitar whilst still at school, after 35 years and a successful career in another sector, he decided to return to his first love of guitar making.

Following a period of training in Granada, Spain , learning the skills of guitar making in the Spanish tradition, he returned to set up his workshop in Cumbria

It was not long before dealers in fine classical guitars recognised David's skills in producing instruments of the finest quality.

With a particular interest in producing lattice braced double top guitars, David has given presentations including to the Royal Northern College of Music, headed up by Craig Ogden.

David's instruments have been played and acclaimed by many leading professional performers.
