    Searls Guitars is now closed until January 3rd 2017 for the holiday break.

    To sign out for 2016 I leave you with this video of the Exposed Grain run, which is the first batch of guitars finished in the new workshop.

    2017 will see the brand push further than ever before, raising the bar once again with some exciting builds coming up that I can't wait to get stuck into!

    I would like to thank each and every one of you who follows my work, comments, shares or even just pop's in from time to time, and an extra special thank you to all those who have bought my art, as it is you guys who make this all possible.

    Most is imported. My only local supplier retired and closed the business, the next closest supplier is a couple hour drive and carries only the basics, so most timbers I use are imported.
