British designer and luthier Dean Fraser has over 20 years experience in designing and building guitars. Having designed and made his first guitar at the age of 14, Dean re-tuned his skills alongside a 16 year military career.

Just two years since taking to lutherie full time Dean has designed and handmade over 100 guitars, and is steadily gaining a worldwide reputation for the quality and skill of his designs and builds.

While Dean currently specialises in vintage guitars he has a number of original designs in the pipelines. Having sold the first prototype of his Luminescent Guitar and Bass to American Hip Hop artist B.o.B, Dean has been working on a number of exciting and relevant designs which will be realised in his new line of Fraser Guitars imminently.

Dean sees the guitar as a canvas and nature as his inspiration: “The aesthetics of the piece must resonate with playability and the quality of the sound. Ensuring the guitars I design and build have a practical application is a priority.” As such, each of Dean’s guitars are not only a visual work of art, they have the ultimate tone and build quality which every guitarist coverts.
