…a guitar worthy of the name…that’s what I wanted to make

The Kithara is the flagship model of the Bailey collection – a modern take on the traditional archtop design. If you are a soloist then you will appreciate the Kithara as the cut away allows full access to the higher frets.

Passion, tradition and technology combine to create what I believe to be the most beautiful guitars in the world

The ultimate guitar…
