Blackspot Guitars was set up to combine a new approach to guitar design with the highest quality craftsmanship.

playersThe designs mix the vintage feel from the heart of the great guitar makers with influences from outside the traditional loop of the guitar world. Made from the finest timbers and components, these guitars blend playability, sound and style like no other. Check out our range, or contact us for custom options. All our guitars are individually built, coloured and finished (in house), to satisfy the most demanding standards of design and craftsmanship.

About Us

Designer and maker for 20 years, and guitar player for 30 years, (he made his first guitar at 9 years old) Patrick Alexander runs Blackspot Guitars from his workshop in Bristol, UK, to produce guitars that have the look and quality lost in the mass produced product available today.

saplingAll instruments are unique, with even the choice of inlay material or components influencing every other design decision - keeping each guitar individual and specific to your requirements.

All our timbers are sourced from ethical suppliers.

Handmade means handmade

All timber is individually selected from the top luthiers suppliers and stabilised in our workshops either before any work commences or at appropriate stages of the making period (3-6 months). With the custom nature of our product it’s not a temptation to mass produce our bodies or necks. All work is undertaken in-house, right up to colouring and finishing with a thin vintage style laquer. If we decide a contour for a neck or final colour, we are the people who produce it.
