Contact Kim today to arrange a meeting

I was born in the 1950's and brought up in a small village called Nether Stowey on the edge of the Quantock Hill's in Somerset. I enjoyed the innovation and excitement of the 60's music scene, and like many others I wanted to be a Beatle and took guitar lessons from the age of nine. This was the start
of my love affair with guitars and I didn't realise
the impact this decision would have on the rest
of my life.

In the early 70's I served an apprenticeship and
made a living for many years as a carpenter and joiner in Bridgwater Somerset. This gave me many
of the skills that are required in luthiery, also it was very helpful having a father who was a carpenter.

Having experience working with wood and knowing not only how to use the tools but how to sharpen them was a huge advantage when I started making
and repairing guitars because I could concentrate
on luthiery.

 

 

 

 

 

KIM WEBBER

Owner / Luthier

I attended evening classes at SCAT in Taunton Somerset, in both electric and acoustic guitar design and construction, Norman Reed's School of Guitar Making in Devon and worked with Rob Button from Weston-Super-Mare in Somerset, however on the whole I am self taught.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT WHEN
YOU VISIT KWG?

It doesn't matter whether you live locally in Somerset or come further afield from Bristol, Exeter or Bath,
if you want a custom built guitar, a repair/upgrade
or an M.O.T/setup, the first step is to give me a ring and make an appointment.

On arrival I will inspect the instrument, advise
you how I can improve your instrument and why,
also how much it will cost. If you feel you want
to go ahead I will also examine your playing style
and discuss makes and gauges of strings. This is
also very important information if a guitar is going
to be setup or custom built to the highest standards. However if you choose not to have the work done
it will have cost you nothing except an hour of
your time.

On completion of the work I will also spend another  hour with you going over all the work and making sure that you are pleased.

CUSTOM BUILT GUITARS

KIMS M.O.T/SETUP

REPAIRS & UPGRADES

This is an instrument to treasure for a lifetime. It will
be one which you have played a part in designing
and building, whether it is an electric, acoustic, archtop
or bass. You will have an instrument which is tailored
to your body, playing style and made from the finest tonewoods to create the sound you are looking for
and it will be effortless to play. Every guitar is one
of a kind built especially for you. Sounding better
and easier to play than you thought possible!

This is a term I use to describe what I do for a guitarist and his instrument instead of calling it a setup.

The reason I choose to do this is because the term setup is commonly abused within the music industry and can mean anything from putting a new set of strings on a guitar to a whole host of repair and maintenance work.

My  M.O.T  includes - checking the tuners and adjusting them, re-cutting the nut, adjusting the truss rod, cleaning and oiling the fretboard, polishing the frets, setting saddle height and intonation, setting pick-up height and cleaning/polishing the guitar.

Bringing an instrument back to life is very rewarding. 
If your guitar is damaged make an appointment to see me as I can repair most things.

I guarantee that I will make your guitar sound better
and easier to play!
