Meet the maker - An Appetite for Perfection, John Ambler of Ambler Custom Guitars

Over the years of playing the guitar, one thing that has increasingly sparked my interest almost more than playing in some instances is the skill of a great luthier and the work they create. 
One which really stood out to me, was UK luthier John Ambler of Ambler Custom Guitars. From the rough and ready 'Junk Yard Dog' model featuring a real metal coating, full of character and patina, to the absolutely stunning figured woods used on a range of his other models. John is truly a maker to watch, as already early on in his career, the quality of work is right up there with the very best and often surpasses!
In our series of Meet the Maker interviews, we caught up with John to chat about his work!

First and foremost, I'm a guitar geek. I'm always on the lookout for quality instruments, made by craftsmen who share the same passion as me. Makers who produce unique, eye catching instruments, striving to create guitars that are different to the norm and what hangs on most guitar store walls. So over time, many great makers have come to my attention, and working with them through my store is always a high priority where possible.
