I designed the Catherwood Guitars shape. I wanted shapes which caressed the players and had a good sound. I chose most of the the book-matched sets of Irish timbers from which we built the instruments. I also made all the artwork to promote it and designed and built the website. I photographed the instruments and ran the social media accounts as well as Firewriting the instruments. The Instruments were built by Stephen McClenaghan and Gerard O’Neill now both at Lowden and by John Catherwood.
Sadly the adventure didn’t work out but I am still proud of the instruments we made and the ethos we promoted.
