Ken Powell now lives and works in Llanwyddn in Montgomeryshire, Wales, having moved from the Peak District. A longstanding player of acoustic guitar Ken started building them about 15 years ago.
As a semi-professional musician for many years with a successful band called Risky Business, Ken knows a thing or two about building quality instruments.
Ken has spent a lot of time researching and studying, trying to find the optimal construction and design to evolve an instrument that suits the serious picker. Ken builds a variety of instruments including a full size guitar, a mid size guitar, a small body guitar, a guitar shaped Mandola or Octave Mandolin and a guitar shaped ten string Cittern.
Ken has developed his own guitar design and bracing constructions to deliver superb tone and volume. Take a look at his website where he goes into detail about the construction and you’ll quickly find he knows his stuff!
