SBC guitars set out a few years ago with one mission, to create ergonomic, light weight guitars that sound massive! We specialise in through body construction, although we use traditional building techniques, we favour design over traditionalism. So far, we have built all wood electric guitars weighing less than 2kg!
SBC was started by Stuart Robson, product designer and guitar tech. After playing in bands and often getting backache from traditional shape guitars, Stuart started developing the SBC products. He was then joined by Stephen Hobson, Electrical Engineer and frustrated leftie, first as a customer then as a builder himself. Stephen helped streamline the building process and often lends his skills to the guitar electronics.
We pride ourselves on our original guitar design concepts. Each design comes from a core concept driven by ergonomics and customer demand. We then realise our guitars, in a combination of modern components and beautiful new and reclaimed woods, sourced locally and worldwide.
