With over 30 years experience as a guitar technician and luthier, Clyde has a master’s touch. That’s why many of Australia’s top guitarists refuse to let anyone else touch their instruments! Clyde's clients have included The Church, Divinyls, Cold Chisel, The Angels, Do Re Mi, Joe Walsh (The Eagles) and even Bo Diddley!
His expertise in instrument restoration has been applied not only to guitars but a myriad of fine instruments including banjos, harp guitars, ukuleles, lutes and mandolins. Clyde is also available by appointment for appraisals and valuations.
Working alongside Clyde is his daughter and apprentice Bron, who has over five years of guitar tech experience. She is a perfectionist when it comes to setups, and also specialises in custom wiring modifications.
Scotty is our apprentice. He is “the bass guy” of Big Music, and also has a keen interest in how to use gear to sculpt signature tones. Together we can solve any issue that your instrument might have. Come in and talk to us about how we can make your guitar dreams come true!
