YOUR IMAGINATION... HANDCRAFTED
Tony Edwards is a bespoke hand maker of Guitars and Basses. Each instrument is individual, the result of hundreds of hours of design, hand shaping and finishing. But while the aesthetic qualities of the instrument are always important, tone is king, and this is where the attention to detail of an experienced craftsman comes to the fore. From choosing the right combination of woods, all the way through to hardware and pickup selection, every element is weighed carefully to produce the result that the musician specifically desires from the instrument.
Cost is also an important element in the musician's choice of instrument. Tony Edwards Custom Guitars strives to offer the same hand built quality and bespoke choice across a range of budgets, competing with the cost of mass produced instruments to deliver absolute value for money.
The workshop has recently moved to Fakenham, the gateway to north Norfolk. Originally opening in Hunstanton in 2005 as a customisation & repairs shop, it moved to full hand crafting in 2009. Success has forced the move to Fakenham to aquire larger workshop space. It still turns out only a very small number of guitars, choosing to remain a totally hand crafted environment with no CNC machines and only a small range of powered tools
