Hello! I am Wilson Burnham
I hand craft classical guitars in the style of the Madrid school of guitar making, using the techniques and construction methods of such masters as Manuel Ramirez and Santos Hernandez, in a small studio outside of Allen’s Park, Colorado.
I use only hand tools and high quality woods to make my guitars. This allows me to make a guitar that has a true singing voice, one that is loud and has a large range of tonal colors and nuances.
As a classical guitar player myself, I know the joy of playing a truly wonderful guitar – one that sings, is responsive to your playing style, is easy to play with a voice that reaches the last row of seats in a recital or concert hall, and most of all, a guitar that you fall in love with so much you never want to stop playing it.
That is the kind of guitar that I make.

Wilson builds a very musical guitar. Truly handcrafted, they really are a pleasure to hold and play. Very warm and inviting. He’s also a character, as you can see. This is reflected in his builds. Please see our current selection of Wilson Burnham guitars here
