UK Handcrafted Instruments
High quality UK made instruments from HiGuitarsUK represent great value for money. Unlike many mass produced instruments, which seem to strive for the same homogenised sound, each model has it's own clear voice and each has a great playing action.
Michael Halls with his HiGuitarsUK Pogo model.
Mike is a professional guitar player and graduate of the coveted LIPA in Liverpool. He has over 10 years of live/studio experience under his belt, including sessions with a number of well known bands.
In recent years Mike has racked-up an impressive list of achievements including:
Playing the ACOUSTIC STAGE at GLASTONBURY to an audience of 5000. Winning the MBF songwriters award. Winning the Songlink award for "Best song musically and lyrically". Winning the Beatles Prize. Signing a management contract and touring with his band Fables.
Mike said: 'Ive been using the guitar fro everything! Gigs, recordings, rehearsals and it's been fantastic. There are a few radio things coming up on the BBC and this new big thing called Songs From The Shed - its getting 10's of thousands of hits and I was the first (and last probably ) to use electric guitar on it (the pogo!).
Lately Michael has been dead busy with lots of gigs and session work. He has been working with the guys from Keane at Universal studios again, doing lots of sessions at Parr Street studios (including with Andy Dunlop from Travis), and has joined a few really exiting bands - Notably one called 6ix Toys with whom Mike has recorded a BBC single along with Mike McCartney (Paul's brother).
The HiGuitarsUK Seraph is a 2 humbucker tone machine with coil-tapped pickups for additional single coil like tones.
The instrument shown has a body crafted from American spalted flamed maple over mahogany and a neck shaped from North American maple with a black ebony fingerboard (rosewood is standard). The pickups in this instance are some very good Kent Armstrong units.
Completed instruments listed in either the Etsy Shop or on Ebay (plus usually a few more) are available for viewing at our 4-Guitars Shop in Pateley Bridge near Harrogate.
Instruments tend to be built in cycles with very small runs of the more popular instruments being built approximately twice a year. This, combined with the time handcrafting takes, means that not every instrument is always available. So, if you are looking for a particular item which doesn't seem to be available email Rob at firstname.lastname@example.org to check on future availability.
Please phone first to check item availability and that the shop will not be closed for any unforseen circumstances.
