Thomsley Guitars were made by Heath Hales (born in Regina, Saskatchewan in 1972). After completing professional musicians’ college, he entered the music community in Calgary, and then moved on to Vancouver. It was there that his musical contacts led him to meet and begin work under Jean Larrivée in 1993 and he eventually earned a position working in the custom shop for Larrivée. Heath moved on to found Thomsley Guitars, where he applied new approaches to the art of inlay. He is one of a number of talented luthiers in the Vancouver area, which is well known for its community of lutherie.
