Matt’s passion for guitars began over 15 years ago, and eventually led him to taking on an apprenticeship with Scott and John Baxendale of the old Colfax Guitar Shop. The Baxendales provided him with the skills and opportunity to perform everything from simple setups to building complete high end custom guitars from scratch. Working with over 8 years of professional luthier service and almost 20 years of woodworking knowledge, he specializes in custom built acoustic and electric guitars. With an eye for aesthetics and extensive knowledge of playability of guitars, Matt will work with you to select the woods, finishes, hardware and unique design attributes that will make your guitar perfect for you. Monkton Guitars also carries a selection of stock McGibney Guitars. Come try one!
