Welcome to the Ainsworth Guitars website.
Luthier John Ainsworth has been crafting fine classical, flamenco and baroque guitars for over 25 years, from his workshop in Lancashire.
Like many other guitarists, he was disappointed and frustrated by the quality and performance of the instruments available to him. Consequentially he set about making his own. Like other respected luthiers, his initial inspiration came from A. P. Sharpe's book on Spanish guitar construction, followed by McLeod & Welford, and Sloane.
The renowned Ivor Mairants was generous with his help and support. In his book about the guitar, Ivor described John Ainsworth as, "An up-and-coming young Luthier". Famous concert artists Julian Bream, John Williams and Alirio Diaz evaluated his guitars and commented favourably on them.
Today, Ainsworth Guitars are available from selected guitar centres and also directly from his workshop. Please enjoy browsing the website, and if you would like to discuss obtaining one of these fine guitars, please do not hesitate to Contact
