beginning with banjos and diversifying to mandolins and guitars.
Difficulties in sourcing quality hardware has led me to produce my own design mandolin and guitar tailpieces, and scalloped and top-tension banjo hoops, made and nickel plated in house. Learning the trade repairing and restoring damaged and well-worn instruments, I discovered very early on that “Quality is never an accident” (John Ruskin).
My dedication is to produce instruments of superior quality while maintaining realistic price levels.
All of the instruments shown on this website are hand built by Phil and Fiona Davidson, and are available to order.
