Thank you for joining us as a Contestant in The Great Guitar Build Off 2023.  The videos of your builds will always have pride of place on YouTube, and we wish you all the best for 2024.

This year we had a total of 260 entries and the guitars produced were stunning. 

We are consistently amazed at the level of talent that we have seen year on year and applaud all you luthiers, woodworkers and makers who produce such instruments, many of them works of art in their own right.

We are not sure what the format will be for the 2024 competition, but we will keep you informed through the Newsletter.

For now, the final guitar has been sent out to its new owner, costs have been calculated and payments to charities and good causes have been made.
