All of Leighton’s guitars are hand made with great care in his small workshop in Leigh-on-Sea. Made with reclaimed woods wherever possible, all parts and woods are sourced, selected, cut, routed, sanded and finished by an actual human and tested by Leighton who is a renowned guitar fanatic and master craftsman.
Editors note: If you want my two cents, this is the finest guitar Leighton has ever crafted. One of my students, a proud Fender Custom Shop Telecaster owner openly admits this is as good as his telecaster. Yeah, it’s that good.
