ABOUT ME

greg harrington | luthier

A self taught luthier, and a member of the Guild of American Luthiers I have been building instruments for over a decade. When I first began, I was instantly fascinated with the process and have since been working toward quality musical instruments with high play-ability and tone. I have spent many hours studying instruments and attending conferences, learning new skills along the way. In 2015 and again in 2018, I had the privilege of studying at the European Institute of Guitar Making in Spain, where we focused on Granada Spanish guitar building techniques of classical and flamenco guitars.

I have a great appreciation for the instrument building process, finding joy and pride in creating something out of raw materials. Over the years I have completed over 90 instruments, including electric solid body, semi-hollow body, steel string acoustic, classical and flamenco guitars as well as electric base and all concert, tenor, bass and baritone ukuleles. I also make specialty wooden boxes, music boxes and Irish Bodhram drums.

The name, Garibaldi Instruments, emerged from one of my favourite places, the Garibaldi Region in British Columbia. When I am not at work or in my workshop I can often be found enjoying many of the recreational activities that this area has to offer.

Every one of us has all we need
Sky of blue and sea of green
In our yellow submarine"
