New Zealand folk musician Peter Madill started making guitars using skills learned from a cabinet-making apprenticeship in the 1960s. He joined a violin repair business in 1973 which became The Stringed Instrument Company, a haven for musicians wanting anything from repairs to a custom builds. Madill was making guitars, mandolins and violins for New Zealand's top folk musicians but stopped making insturments in 1987 - in search of a more stable income. In 2007 Madill moved back to Dunedin and began making guitars again.
