PJD Guitars was founded in 2010 by Leigh Dovey. The name PJD is dedicated to the memory of Leigh’s late father who was prop maker for the Royal Opera House in London’s Covent Garden. Leigh started working with a basic knowledge of wood work picked up from his father and was lucky enough to inherit his tools as well as a small home workshop. Leigh spent his days working as a sound and video engineer at the Royal Opera House and his evenings honing his craft in guitar building.
I started PJD with the intention of building a brand around quality yet affordable boutique instruments that are hand crafted here in the UK with love and passion.
