Welcome to Manton Customs, Shropshire based luthier of fine electric and bass guitars. Each instrument is hand built with pride in England from the finest timbers. We are happy to offer all of the more typical tone woods plus some exciting British alternative options for every aspect of the guitar. Whether it be fingerboard, neck, or body there is a British timber which can be used. We very much enjoy working with these native timbers and get great satisfaction from using alternatives which aren't commonly offered on electric guitars.
We are situated near Ludlow in the Shropshire hills and have been creating new and exciting guitars for many years. Not only do we insist on high grade timbers but also quality hardware from named brands including Gotoh, EMG, Di- Marzio, Kent Armstrong and Seymour Duncan. However, as with our timbers the choice of hardware is yours.
