Working Dog Guitars is named after our Border Collie 'Baxter' but the name also stands for anyone who works hard for their music - The busking muso, the guitarist in a garage band or the seasoned pro.
We use native tone woods such as
Bunyia Pine and Tassie Blackwood are gaining a great reputation in Australia and North America as superior tone woods.
Blackwood has qualities somewhere between Mahogany and Rosewood.
Depending on customer requirements, we also use
We use traditional french polishing techniques, Nitrocellulose and Danish Oils that produces a rich deep patina without dampening the soundboard as some modern lacquers do.
We don't make a lot of guitars but the few we do make are quality instruments rich in tone and balance.
