The Craftsman

Nathan Ball

I am a maker of beautiful, hand-crafted acoustic guitars, constructed from scratch with the finest, sustainably sourced and, wherever possible, reclaimed woods.  These original, bespoke instruments are designed and made-to-measure on site in Somerset, England with any style, design or preference catered for.

I have been playing professionally as a singer-songwriter/guitarist for around 15 years now and have had the opportunity to play some beautiful and great sounding guitars in my time. I am well respected as a guitarist and believe that my level of skill as a player works to my advantage when it comes to actually making guitars.  If, as an accomplished guitarist, I can make instruments that inspire me to play and draw the best out of me, then hopefully those who get to play my creations will feel the same way.  It is my goal to build only those instruments that I find it extremely difficult to let go of once I have played them!

I am currently taking new orders and am available for consultations. Please feel free to contact me with any enquiries you may have or to organise a face-to-face meeting.

If you are just here to browse then I hope you enjoy your visit and if you would like to hear some of the music I make with the guitars I build, then please be sure to visit my music website.
