Welcome to Burgin Guitars

I handcraft acoustic guitars, Weissenborn style guitars, Irish bouzoukis and citterns at my workshop in Wellington, New Zealand (Aotearoa).

My instruments are played world wide by musicians such as Dan Spitz (Anthrax),  Henry Kaiser, David Lindley, Mark Seymour (Hunters and Collectors), lilt, Barefoot Truth, Fred Kinbom, Lloyd Thayer,  and hundreds of other musicians. 

At Burgin Guitars we go all out to get our instruments made on time and within the agreed budget. Usual waiting time can be a few months, and mostly – no deposits (unless it’s something really different). We send photos of the build and can chat any time too – I’m at paddyburgin@gmail.com or via facebook.

I have played music all my life and have been making instruments for more than twenty five years. I have exhibited at guitar shows in Montreal, Healdsburg, and Newport, Rhode Island, and around New Zealand. If you can get to a David Lindley concert, chances are he’ll have at least one of his Burgintwangers on stage.

My instruments and some discussions about them are also on Facebook here.
