Welcome to the Toon Guitars website
featuring hand-made guitars
by Steve Toon.

For some 25 years I have been building Classical guitars and more recently Jazz  and Steel String guitars alongside a career as a consultant and project engineer in the woodworking industry. In 2006 I decided to concentrate on building guitars as my full time career.

I was first attracted to the guitar by its versatile sound and its simple beauty. The guitar's sound is also capable of being extremely aggressive and strong, powerful and passionate or light and tender. My mission is to produce the finest guitars combining the best musicality with pleasing aesthetics, constructed by hand from the highest quality materials.
