Where it all began.......

are the brand name of custom made guitars by Kinellar Guitar Studios.
The very first one  started out when, 30 odd yrs ago, I fancied a "Tele" but couldn't afford one, so I decided to try and make one. I had been working in a local timber yard as a mechanic and managed to get a hold of some pieces of wood. After about 8 months my 001 "Tele" was created. Since then it has been modified (or should I say butchered), bored, filled and painted umpteen times. Sometimes I think I would have been cheaper to buy one new.

Some of my repair clients were keeping up to date with the progress and when the finished article finally came about, asked me if I could make something for them. A body, a neck etc. The next thing I knew I was up to # 6, a black "Strat" style with DiMarzio blues pickups. This guitar I kept for about 6 years, until finally someone offered me an absurd price for it.
The next guitar I've kept, since 2005, is #19, another "Strat" style with a quilted maple top, roller bridge, Piezo, DiMarzio's etc. . It plays and sounds like like a dream.

Unfortunately due to illness, not much were made between 2002 and the end of 2008. As I started to feel better lately, I've started to experiment with different woods for the bodies and have started building again.

Any Questions ?, Interested ?, Just give me a call.
