At age 18 Mark Bailey started his guitarmaking career with “Patrick Eggle” guitars working with people like Trevor Wilkinson, Gary Levinson, Rob Williams and Patrick himself. Having learned from masters of the art until 1998 Mark decided to start his own guitar making company with his partner Carol Davies. Their first premises were in a double-decker bus!
Mark also is fond of teaching guitar making and runs a popular “Build your own guitar” course. Some students have even gone on to start up their own guitar making businesses, including Nathan Sheppard Guitars, Arrowhead guitars among others.
Mark has built over 260 guitars including Basses and acoustics and has recently added Jazz style Archtops to his catalogue.
