Instruments available now from the early days in the workshop………..
A guitar with a bright voice with stunning flamed maple back and sides and attractive figured maple bindings to the top and back. Whilst set up with a reasonably low action, the deep dreadnought body gives this instrument a nice bass boom if you want it.
You can hear Johnny Quadrio play “Dimming of the Day” (orig. by Richard Thompson) using this guitar, by clicking here: https://soundcloud.com/johnnyquadrio/dimming-of-the-day/s-Sd68u
This instrument has quite a warm sound, and the black grain fill gives it an aged appearance. A guitar you will probably want to play every day!
Cocobolo OM (Left-handed)
Being right-handed, I haven’t been able to trial this instrument fully, but true to the reputation of cocobolo as a tonewood, my initial impression has been that its rustic appearance belies a quite wonderful tone. Contact me if you feel you qualify to be Aldington Guitars first left-handed test pilot!
After my prototype rosewood and sitka OM, this instrument was built with a european spruce top and a nice deep dreadnought body to give a little more volume for those that want it, whilst maintaining the warmth of the rosewood. I was not disappointed!

Warm-toned with plenty of power in the mid-range, this little walnut and spruce guitar looks and sounds absolutely charming!
