Kind words from some prominent customers
Both of my Melville’s are incredible! I’ve played a lot of instruments from all over the world and your guitars are definitely world class.Tommy Emmanuel
When I was 16 years old, and at the humble beginnings of my life as an artist, I spent every cent I had ever saved on buying my beautiful Melville guitar, and I have never looked back. Whether it be a simple folk song or a complex finger-style arrangement, the Melville in all its beauty instantly engages me with the creative zone.
Often when I am playing or writing music, I find myself wondering if perhaps the wood itself is imbued with a magical life force of its very own, such
Above all, you know an instrument is special when you play a single note and all you want to do is sit and listen to it ring out into the world, and as me and my sound engineer discovered, you’ll be waiting a while for it to finish ringing out. What a privilege it is to play such a special instrument. I will always be very grateful.Alesa Lajana
Truly inspiring. The ‘Melville 000’ guitar used on my latest recording is exquisite. Impeccably crafted with the most beautiful tone I have ever heard. To have used a lesser instrument would be doing the music a disservice.
I am astounded by the level of craftsmanship you bring to the making of guitars and marvel at your ability to tirelessly tend to every detail. My new ‘000’ is a magnificent instrument which consists of the perfect playability, comfort, aesthetic and richness of tone- it is simply a joy to play. I am ecstatic at the fact that I have finally found an instrument that will enable me to get on with the business of making music. Many thanksLucas Michailidis
Chris Melville’s guitars have a full, warm, singing tone and fantastic colour response. They are extremely well balanced with an even response throughout all registers. Harmonics and sustain are exceptional and the guitars record beautifully. They are very comfortable to play and the finish is perfect. Chris’ customer service is excellent and his attention to detail is second to none.Karin Schaupp
Christopher Melville’s guitars are among the finest instruments I’ve been lucky enough to play. The level of workmanship and quality of materials is as good as it gets and as an added bonus they also sound superb!
It is, without doubt, one of the very finest instruments I’ve ever seen. The neck feels great, fingerboard width perfect. The design is restrained beauty itself……what can I say, except it sounds incredible too. I’m not great at the flowery descriptions of how an instrument sounds but there is a sustain, depth and clarity to this guitar which is just out of this world. I’m so happy!…

When I first played one of Chris’ 000 guitars, I knew that my search for the ultimate fingerstyle acoustic instrument was over. To find a guitar that had the full rich tone, playability, and gorgeous design aesthetics that I was looking for was simply incredible. One very happy customer right here.Bart Stenhouse
