Alex Bishop is a guitar maker specializing in gypsy jazz and steel string guitars. He is based in Bristol, United Kingdom. His passion for lutherie comes from a life-long obsession with making things, coupled with a love for the music of 1930s guitar genius Django Reinhardt.
Inspired by the aesthetics of the art deco era, Alex knows that he is on an endless journey to produce finest-quality musical instruments, striving for perfection and uniqueness with every instrument.
I love the visual impact of hard geometry against the iconic, seductive outline of a guitar. I’m inspired by the art deco era and the golden age of swing music. I look forward to displaying my latest work at the HGGS 2020 alongside so many other unique and inspiring makers.
