About This Listing


Rob Armstrong – The master craftsman to the stars including: Gordon Gilstrap, George Harrison, Bert Jansch to name but a few.

Since making his first guitar back in 1971, he has continued with the philosophy of making one instrument at a time using basic hand tools.

With this freedom to create many variations of stringed instruments, all from original designs and ideas the result is no instrument is repeated or ever duplicated – true one-off’s!

This eye catching and striking designed electro acoustic instrument is made from Sapele wood, a hand sculpted one piece body/neck, with a Rosewood fingerboard and the 19 original nickel frets still in place. The piezo pickup is installed beneath the custom made Rosewood bridge.

This fine, high quality instrument benefits from a recent set up including neck relief adjustment, frets cleaned and polished, fingerboard oiled and restrung with a set of 9-46. The action is low and very comfortable for articulated lead lines, exuding a rich mature well rounded tone.

Please review all photos carefully as they form part of the description. We can provide addition photos on request.

An extremely rare opportunity to purchase; new to market in nearly 30 years, a fine, high quality instrument, lightly played, well cherished and stored correctly, presented in pristine condition, made buy one of England’s finest revered luthiers.

Highly desirable and sort after by Collectors, Investors and Stage Player, significantly appreciating in value over the past few years due to the very limited numbers of Rob Armstrong guitars that come to the market.

Not just a great, unique “one off guitar but a very sound investment piece.
