Black Isle Stringed Instruments

Bruce Armour – Black Isle Stringed Instruments

I have been making instruments for just over four years now. Initially I made them for myself and then for friends and now I am offering to build instruments for anyone who is looking for something a bit special. If someone has a specific design in mind I would be happy to develop that with them. That would include finishes incorporating illustrations or special paint effects.

Here is David MacGregor playing one of my instruments .



  • I have a Hofner President that I bought from new in 1965 that I took apart to smarten up in the 1980’s and it has remained in bits ever since. I want to be able to play it again. Is it a challenge you may be interested in taking on ?
