Martin Dixon Guitars

product types:

Martin Dixon was a self-taught luthier who turned to making bespoke guitars and basses full time in 2001 years ago after moving to Otley from Hertfordshire. A former lecturer in guitar making at Leeds College of Music with a background in design, he had been making guitars as a sideline for more than 20 years before making it his full time occupation. Dixon used his design background to create unique and eye-catching instruments including:marquetry adorned guitars, hand painted guitars, patchwork guitars - but also more conventional models for the less adventurous customer. Replacement bodies and necks were also available. Dixon's website was active from 2002 until 2010.
