Kim Lissarrague began making guitars in 1991 at the age of thirteen. He was inspired by the luthier Peter Biffin to experiment with new techniques for building instruments, and refine and develop all aspects of the guitar. After leaving school he worked with James Cargill in Melbourne from 1997 to 2000, where he repaired and made electric and acoustic instruments. Currently he has a small workshop in Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, where he makes a limited number of guitars each year. Lissarrague currently focuses on classical guitar making using his own designs based on the 'Australian School' of guitar making; typically with lattice-braced, arched backs.
