- acoustic guitars
Roy Noble began building musical instruments in 1959 at the age of sixteen. His first efforts were classical and flamenco guitars from the Spanish school of guitar construction as well as medieval lutes and violins.
In the summer of 1963 Roy began building steel string guitars using his knowledge of classical guitar and violins in their construction.
Roy retired from commercial guitar building during the later half of the seventies. He returned to full time construction in the fall of 1991. Roy moved his family and shop to the high desert above Los Angeles in 1993, where he worked with his wife and son.
