Ben started building guitars in a garage in Chichester while studying the building of early stringed musical instruments at the prestigious West Dean College. After ﬁnding the early music scene a little too conservative for his taste, Ben started to concentrate on building truly custom instruments and, in 2005 Crimson Guitars was founded in a small workshop just outside Dorchester on the UK’s beautiful south coast.
After building instruments with such luminaries of the guitar world as Robert Fripp, Charlie Jones and Jakko Jakszyk among others and after a few workshop moves, Ben started ﬁlming video tutorials and also making luthiers tools. These two new aspects brought Crimson to a much wider audience and Ben’s videos now rack up over half a million views every month. Additionally our hand made luthiers tools are helping to create guitars all around the world.
