Original design guitars by 3Rguitars.

Here's my chance to be a bit creative, I don't want to just build, restore or refinish mainstream stuff. I'm always getting ideas for new designs, I have may own range of guitars the "Dina range" that are all basically the same shape but incorporate different hardware and pickups. I will also build one-off designs, if I have a particularly unique idea. Most of my inspiration comes from vintage instruments, this can be the overall shape or amalgamating different features from a number of guitars or then again something completely wacky! depending upon what I want to achieve I'll use various woods and hardware but I'm probably going to always finish it in vintage cellulose type lacquer as I do think it's the best. If you have dream guitar that you can't get off the shelf then give me a call and I may be able to make it a reality, I'm always more than happy to talk guitars!

First comes the Dina range then some custom builds.
