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 Dan Spitz (Anthrax),  Henry Kaiser, David Lindley, Mark Seymour (Hunters and Collectors), Lilt, Barefoot Truth, Fred Kinbom, Lloyd Thayer, Green Ginger, Al Billings and Warren LoveThey 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.  

I have played the guitar, bouzouki, and piano for most of my life and currently play in several different groups. I have also exhibited guitars at guitar shows in Montreal,  Healdsburg, California, and Newport Rhode Island. If you can’t get to a David Lindley concert, you can hear him playing Burgin Weissenborns on the soundtrack of the Werner Herzog film Encounters at the End of the World.
