Claffey Guitars is: Ricky Claffey, Luthier.

Ricky crafts fine, stringed musical instruments in his workshop in Glasgow, Scotland. Having studied under Master Luthiers, Bill Kelday and Paul Hyland, for three years at Anniesland College, Ricky has now set up shop in Thornliebank. You will find him there most days, handcrafting steel string guitars and ukuleles with tireless care and precision. The results of which are evident in the beautiful craftsmanship and warm, full-bodied sound that is utterly incomparable to any factory made musical instrument.

Ricky usually has several guitars on the go at the one time. If you are interested in having a Claffey Guitar custom built for you, please explore the relevant part of the website, or please get in touch.
