Simcoe Guitars

Alan Simcoe has been building instruments since 1993. Although his professional output includes many modern and historical designs, he specializes in nylon-stringed guitars in the Hauser/Torres tradition. His formal schooling includes a B.Mus. degree in classical guitar performance. An accomplished player, Alan applies his music sensibilities to the design, building and voicing of his instruments. He is largely self-taught as a luthier, but credits Robert Ruck and Jeffrey Elliot with critical input.
