Located on the western boundary of the Kouchibouguac National Park in New Brunswick, JM Guitars is a small shop that started building custom acoustic guitars in September 2015. Growing-up I learned how to play the piano but always had a fascination with guitars. My first 'hands-on' was my older brother's 1973 Mansfield 683 (which he still has today). Despite my best attempts to play it as a young kid in the 70's learning how to play would not come until many years later and once introduced, I was hooked. The enjoyment of playing led to to my interest to build and I was fortunate to undertake an intensive course of instruction, from where I have continued to evolve my appreciation and approach to building. I enjoy the process, the art and the science of handcrafting an acoustic guitar, and each build brings with it new ideas and insights that I look forward to incorporating into a future build.
