MattsenGuitars' Shop Announcement

Custom made metal body Resonator guitars. Unique Designs and sounds.
Hi, for over 15 years I have been building custom resonator guitar here in the islands of Aotearoa New Zealand. I started building Resonator guitars as I wish to make the sounds I was hearing on the old blues recordings. As I am a engineer I thought I would have a go at building one. One instrument lead to another as local musicians brought what I made. Hand building instruments allows me to offer musician a range of guitars that are a unique and offer them a new sound to be inspired by. Hand building also allow you to focus on quality over quantity.
