Welcome to Burgin Guitars
I handcraft acoustic guitars, Weissenborn style guitars, Irish bouzoukis and citterns at my workshop in Wellington, New Zealand (Aotearoa).
My instruments are owned and played world wide by musicians such as Henry Kaiser, David Lindley, Mark Seymour, Lilt, Barefoot Truth, Fred Kinbom, Lloyd Thayer, Green Ginger, Al Billings and Warren Love. They are played in Newfoundland, Alaska and many other parts of North America, Belgium. France, Spain, Sweden, Ireland, England, Australia, Japan, China, Germany, Colombia, and New Zealand.
For many years a musician and a woodworker, my background is in chairmaking, custom furniture design and guitar repair. I have played the guitar, bouzouki, and piano for most of my life and currently play in several different groups as well as performing and recording. I have also exhibited guitars at the Montreal Guitar Show, and similar guitar shows at Healdsburg, California, and Newport Rhode Island.
