Welcome to James Watts Fine Instruments, hand crafted guitars.

I build each guitar not only to be aesthetically pleasing but also sonically beautiful. Great guitars are the result not of only fine craftsmanship but also an understanding of the materials that go into them and the mechanics of how the instrument works. In short, lutherie is where art and engineering collide.
