|Welcome to the Shop|
Webber Guitars is located in North Vancouver, British Columbia. It's here, in a small but efficient shop, that David Webber builds some of the finest acoustic guitars available anywhere. With the help of Igor, the resident computer controlled router, David is able to produce on average ten guitars a month. With the many models offered and an impressive stockpile of exotic materials, most requests can be accommodated. Below are a few photos of the shop and some of the instruments recently built.
|David has been in his present North Vancouver location for 4 years. With
access to high quality local materials as well as the more traditional hardwoods,
David is exploring some new and unusual combinations.
