Jimmy Moon is a famous Glasgow luthier who began his working life as an apprentice engineer in the 1960s, before establishing a guitar making workshop on a farm in Arran in 1979. Although not formally trained as a luthier his training as a toolmaker enabled him to lay out his designs accurately and how to use hand tools. His younger brother was an active musician and that got him exposure to various guitar designs. In 1985 he moved the business to Glasgow where he has been ever since. From 1985 to 1995 Moon made mainly electric instruments but after that he concentrated on acoustic guitars and mandolin family instruments.
