Lester Backshall

Lester began making guitars after taking early retirement in 2008. His website promotes his work as a luthier, building in the traditional Spanish style
Recently, Lester aquired the complete stock of a retiring luthier, and now has a large quantity of top grade aged timber to work with. However, mindful of the over-exploitation and virtual extinction of some traditional guitar making woods, he is also making instruments with more locally sourced materials such as - Walnut, Yew, Plane, and Maple.
