Welcome to Ralston Guitars

Are you passionate about Acoustic Archtops?

I'm Richard and I build these handcrafted guitars from my home workshop in Upper Hutt, New Zealand.

I use the highest quality tone woods imported from Germany to ensure that the sound of each instruments is world class.

Have a look around this site and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I'm more that happy to chat with you.

The piece above, "Grace", is played on an archtop I completed at end of 2015. This guitar is now with it's new owner in Japan. The chart for this piece is available on my companion site www.ArchtopJazzGuitar.com
