Martin - 50s inspired Moderne.
"I have recently had a guitar made by luthier Matt Loxley. The attention to detail was quite exceptional, also his input into the making of this particular guitar was extremely helpful. The craftsmanship and finish of the instrument was second to none in my humble opinion. The guitar plays like a dream, not a dead spot to be found anywhere on the fretboard. Just a joy to play. Matt was particularly easy to get on with during the build process, so I can most definitely recommend him to anyone who may have a custom build in mind.
Susan - Red Sparkle Red Special
I purchased a bespoke Red Special from Loxley Custom Guitars in December of 2020, and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase!
The build is beautiful, with metal flake paint, and an exquisitely lacquered fretboard! The neck is thicker than what you would find on a standard BMG, making it extremely comfortable, even with my very small hands. The hardware keeps the guitar in tune, making it a joy to play!
The guitar was well packaged for its trip from the UK to the US, and arrived safely in less than a week.
Matt has great customer service, and has always promptly assisted me with any questions or concerns. I couldn’t be happier!

"Having found Loxley Custom Guitars on my Instagram feed, I was intrigued by the way Matt published the progress of his projects on social media. I loved how he was building guitars and I decided to make contact to see how he felt about building me a guitar.
Matt is a really nice, approachable guy with a real passion for his craft. After chatting to him more, we decided we'd go ahead with a bespoke build. I was involved throughout the entire process and Matt regularly updated me with photos of the progress. I visited his workshop a few times during the build and really felt part of it.
The end result? Well, I couldn't be happier with it. It's everything I've ever wanted in a LP and the playing experience is just a joy. The tone is like nothing I've played before - so clear and crisp - I just love it. I'm now thinking of getting Matt to build me a Stratocaster and I would recommend (if you're looking for THAT guitar) you give him a call!"

"Having a guitar built to my own specification by Loxley Custom Guitars has been an incredibly rewarding and pleasurable experience.
When I first approached Matt with my suggestions, they were transparent with their estimations, costs and buildability.
Throughout the process, Matt would keep me regularly updated with progress and would send me photographs throughout. Altogether, I had received just shy of 200 photographs of my instrument from start to finish. This approach enabled me to feel a part of the process.
The quality and playability of the guitar is remarkable and far exceeds other higher market instruments in my possession.
I commend Loxley Custom Guitars for their patience and consultation through my own moments of indecisiveness whilst specifying wood materials and colour schemes. Matt's incredible knowledge of building instruments enabled me to make well informed decisions.
Matts's professional work ethic has turned my vision into reality.
Darren - Custom Strat
I've been wanting my own custom guitar for a while now and the whole process from start to finish has been really exciting. I've been kept well informed and above all the finished product is just what I wanted.
To have a REALLY quality guitar, made to just how I visualised at significantly less than an 'off the shelf' custom shop guitar is great.
Matt has been really great with his advice and knowledge throughout - which woods to select, which hardware and pickups has made the process less daunting and thoroughly intoxicating
Gareth - Silver Sparkle Junior
I got in touch with Matt after seeing his work on social media and I am so glad I did! I explained to him that I wanted to replicate an original 50s les paul junior and right from the very beginning it was clear to me that Matt not only knew his stuff but his passion for making guitars shone through. He talked through all the different pick up options and period correct capacitors in order to gain the ultimate vintage sound.
The great thing about Matt is that he loves to make guitars that are a little bit different to your usual stuff, so we ended up talking through the options to make my guitar unique to me. Throughout the whole process Matt always kept in touch and gave me regular updates with pictures that I've even created an album from because there were so many.
I was even lucky enough to meet Matt when I went to pick my guitar up where he showed me some other projects that he was working on which made me realise just how diverse his luthier skills are. Just to top it all off he is really nice chap too!
If you want you dream guitar, look no further than Matt at Loxley guitars.
