Joshua House


I picked up my first guitar when I was 15 and never looked back. My interest in guitar-building came from my love for the instrument, and through seeing the custom guitars that many of my favourite musicians were playing. It had never occurred to me that someone could build their own guitar. In 2003, I took a building course with world-renowned luthier, Sergei de Jonge, then returned home to continue honing my skills through self-study.

I started House Guitars with the purpose of building custom acoustic guitars of the highest quality. My guitars are built in a climate-controlled workshop using the finest materials available. I offer a wide variety of woods and custom options which allow me to tailor each guitar to the client’s specific needs. Whether you are a professional guitarist or someone who simply enjoys playing a fine guitar, I encourage you to consider one of my instruments.

Browse through the photo gallery to view some of my previous work, or to see the guitars that are in progress. You can also take a look at what I currently have for sale. Please contact me if you have any questions or are looking for additional information. I am located in Goderich, Ontario, Canada.
