about

My name is Zac Booth and in 2018 I set up Z.D.B Guitars. I make bespoke guitars, do repairs, restoration and set-ups from my studio in Great Easton, Leicestershire, England.

With a background in Art, Sculpture and Music, I studied Musical Instruments BSc at London Metropolitan University, gaining a First Class Honours and learning the craftsmanship and woodworking skills for my life as a luthier. 

Ever since I was young, I have always been fascinated with wood and its capabilities. Back then I would often spend hours whittling spoons and making swords, bows and arrows. 

Testing ideas I have gained a vast understanding of the elements that make up an instrument’s complex sound and its requirements over its lifetime. I spend hundreds of hours handcrafting each guitar to create a beautifully unique steel strung acoustic guitars, that will provide years of pleasure and creative inspiration.

If you’d like a beautiful guitar that is a work of art in its own right, with an incredible balance across the frequency range, get in touch!
