Daniel Guitars

Daniel Guitars

Daniel Guitars are hand built high-end top quality instruments Inspired by the extremely passionate and talented Darren Horton. Crafted in his countryside workshop near Redhill in Surrey. Darren has been building quality guitars for over 10 years now. He picked up his skill at Merton College MIT course 2 years part-time and a full-time last year so the 10,000-hour rule is well and truly broken giving each and every guitar built his 100% attention which shines through in the detail.

Tragedy struck when Darren lost his guitar playing son Daniel and nothing really seemed to matter anymore and a great depression set in. The tools were put down for a short period while the future was contemplated upon. A close friend and aid to Darren helped him through these difficult times and inspired him to continue building what is now Daniel Guitars. Masterpieces all by hand built from sustainable timbers and as locally sourced components, pickups and cases. 

Drop by to see these guitars up close and personal, handcrafted with vintage-correct appointments, subtly aged with natural checking. All options are available with ageing.
