  Selected Makers

Phil Davidson

I have been handcrafting fine instruments for over twenty five years, beginning with banjos and diversifying to mandolins and guitars.

Difficulties in sourcing quality hardware has led me to produce my own design mandolin and guitar tailpieces, and scolloped and top-tension banjo hoops, made and nickel plated in house. I discovered very early on that "Quality is never an accident" (John Ruskin).

My dedication is to produce instruments of superior quality while maintaining realistic price levels.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 7 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
