Talking Guitar

Talking Guitar: Tom Sands Guitars

Since completing his apprenticeship and setting up his own workshop in his hometown of Ripon, North Yorkshire last year, it is fair to say that Tom Sands has not stopped, with a staggering two-year waiting list already. Combining his own stunning build designs with the traditional Somogyi-style body shapes, and his much talked about copper-infused rosettes, Tom Sands is most definitely the one to watch.

Last week we had the absolute pleasure of sitting down with Tom for our latest Talking Guitar episode, a truly wonderful young luthier with a true passion for his craft, his customers and of course making his mark in the guitar community. We took some time to chat about his rocket-like rise to fame in the luthier world, how he got started in guitar building, his apprenticeship with the one and only Ervin Somogyi, the social media antics of 'The Week This Week', Jen Ritter, his new line (the S, M & L) and of course musical aficionado and endorsed artist Will McNicol. We hope you enjoy the interview:

We are very excited to announce that we have just confirmed our next build slot for Tom Sands Guitars via The North American Guitar, which will commence in 2021.
