Peter Bartram was captivated by the guitar in the early 1960s when he started playing in rock bands with school-friends in local West London dance halls. Later in the ’60s he played regularly in folk clubs and then in swing bands during the very early 1970s while  also teaching guitar in London schools. He made his first acoustic guitar in 1966. This was quickly followed up by requests for guitars from musician friends and then from musicians far and wide. He has been a full-time instrument maker and repairer since the early 1970s.

Bartram concentrates on acoustic guitars and mandolins but also makes solid body electric guitars
