Welcome to Hilsley Guitars.Kenny Hilsley

In the site you’ll find details about the standard range of guitars I build as well as the types of Tone Woods I use for my instruments.  There are details of the three styles I make, as well as some custom models which have been commissioned, so have a look and hopefully you’ll see something that catches your eye. I’m always keen to hear feedback on my work so please let me know what you think.

I’ve just recently completed  a pair of matching guitars in the “Burns” style with some modifications on the body depth and sound hole details. The back and sides are Fiddle-back Tasmanian Black wood with Adirondack Spruce tops. The black wood came all the way from Tasmania( funnily enough!!) and the Adirondack from the States, so all in all pretty international guitars! See some pictures in the Instrument Type tab on the home page under “Wood n Wire”.

Check out the Facebook page for any upcoming events and also progress on my current commissions.

If you wish to find out a bit more about anything please use the “Contact Us” tab to send your enquiry and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Kind regards,
