Hello! I am Wilson Burnham and welcome to my blog!
I hand craft classical guitars in a small studio in Denver, Colorado.
I use only hand tools and high quality woods to make my guitars. This allows me to make a guitar that has a true singing voice with robust projection and capable of producing a large range of tonal colors and nuances.
As a classical guitar player myself, I know the joy of playing a truly wonderful guitar - one that sings, is responsive to your playing style, with a voice that reaches the last row of seats in a recital or concert hall, and most of all, a guitar that you fall in love with so much you never want to stop playing it.
That is the kind of guitar that I make.
