Are Fylde Instruments hand made?


All guitar makers have lots of special equipment, its the sort of job that cannot be done entirely with ordinary woodworking tools. I’ve been doing this a long time, so I have a lot of "toys", but the vast majority of the work here is by hand- chisels, spokeshaves, planes, scrapers and sandpaper. Around 95% of our time is "at the bench", far more than most other makers of similar size. I’ve tried just about every method at every stage, and I think I have it just right.
