Hi and welcome to my website.  It will be gradually added to as time goes by, with photographs of my guitars and basses and other information of how my models are developing.  As a female luthier (we are few in number), I like to put a bit of myself into my work.  I hope you like what you see.

All my guitars and basses are made in the UK in our workshops which adjoin the retail business I have with my business partner and fellow master luthier Marc Lamaq.  All instruments for sale will be available from our retail showroom at The Great Northern Guitar Company Ltd based in Shotton Colliery, County Durham.


A homepage section

Over the coming months you will see some interesting guitars popping up on my page.  And something that will cater for us females too!


Coming from a long line of woodworkers, it looks like I have inherited some genetic memory.  I’ve always been into music, but I don’t think anyone expected me to build guitars for a living.

I’m fortunate in that I’ve been working with some of the best luthiers about.  During a visit to the States some years ago I was lucky enough to spend some time with Bob Benedetto in his factory in Savannah.  His archtop guitars are simply amazing and his workshops so well organised and immaculate.


The New Sue Scott Guitar Design

This is the basic design of the new Sue Scott guitar range. I’m going to modify the head, but I’m very happy with the shape of the body and scratch plates. Talking of scratch plates, there will be some interesting materials used. Keep tuning in to check on developments.
