Rob Armstrong started making guitars in Coventry in 1970. He works alone: each instrument is unique, and handmade using basic tools. He now aims to complete about 15 commissions a year – leaving time for development and consultancy for Loughborough University. Rob has made guitars for George Harrison, Bert Jansch, Gordon Giltrap, Fairport Convention, and the Albion Band. In 1989, many of these musicians made a tribute CD entitled Master Craftsman. He has produced some unorthodox instruments including long scale guitars, baby guitars, and double necks even a steel-string acoustic made from polystyrene packaging. In July 2010 his workshop was destroyed by fire (and Armstrong himself was injured), but by November that year he was back in business. Armstrong designed the Gordon Giltrap Signature model acoustic - which was produced and distributed by JHS.
