Fame in Germany, Mayones (In poland I think?). Ran is also in Poland. There must be more.

However, don't limit yourself to those, there's lots of good luthiers spread across our nether lands. Most any of them make custom guitars.

Just look for Luthier?
Fylde will make you a custom acoustic or base it on one of their stock range. Not cheap though.
Or there's a couple of guys on here but USA based. Even so, shipping isn't THAT much.
Oh what about the guy at Whitstable Guitars. He has the skills if he has the time.
I pick up my guitar and play

Yeah, Bailey guitars are real.



My friend's dad won a competition via radio and got to custom build her own guitar. Kinda like a LP Studio. Very nice!

There's also...

- Feline Guitars
- Legra Guitars (dave_mc has one)
- Black Machine

There's loads of them, I just know of the popular ones.

Ran are pretty decent, they're in Poland, though they can be easily shipped!
Above post may or may not be true.

Feline guitars. Blackmachine. Legra.
Benford ship to the UK, and are still reasonably good value compared to those mentioned above.

wez venables who posts on the bareknuckle forum (and elsewhere, i think) also builds guitars which look very nice.

take a look at the adverts in the back of guitarist, guitar buyer or guitar and bass magazine- often UK-based luthiers will advertise there, would give you a few more websites to look at...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
