The voice of business in Canberra

A good luthier in Canberra?

By 30january1649 9 February 2011 5

Can anyone recommend a good luthier in or near Canberra – one who does good work on acoustic guitars?

There apparently used to be a guy in Tuggeranong, but I know no more than that.

[ED – According to Wikipedia “A luthier (pronounced /?lu?ti?r/ LOO-ti-?r[1]) is someone who makes or repairs stringed instruments.”]

What’s Your opinion?

I recommend a fellow called Dominic in Belconnen. He makes acustic guitars and is a woodworking genius. He can be contacted on 0401 809 215

I know of an acouristic instrument maker who also does repairs.
His name is John Copley and his mobile is 0422 137 566

The gentleman in Tuggeranong you are thinking of is Barron Clarke! Does a good job, although it can be a little bit of a strange experience visiting his workshop and home. He has reapired a resonator and banjo-lin for me, and I can attest to the quality of his work:

Apart from that, I seem to recall another guy making and repairing dobros/acoustics, although I can’t remember his name…
