NCG Guitars are handmade in our Nottingham workshop. The current range evolved from the alloy NCG Moneymaker guitar project. Our concepts are original and incorporate as many parts of our own design and manufacture as possible.
We use top-quality materials and woods and wherever possible try to source in the UK, including cases. We have developed our own range of Tele’ and hardtail guitar bridges, along with neck plates, trapeze, string trees, string ferrule blocks, strap buttons and the alloy NCG T-Bar. All metal hardware is bespoke and made locally in Nottingham. NCG bridges and parts are available to buy separately, please enquire.
Some guitars are made from reclaimed woods and no two instruments are the same. It’s the small details that makes all the difference, such as the individual decals, Custom CoolEtch pickguards and switch rings hand-made in Newcastle upon Tyne or the Haramis knobs, admittedly all the way from New Jersey. A variety of quality pickups are available and guitars can be customised to order.
Guitars are supplied with Hiscox UK manufactured fitted hard cases.
NCG bridges are licensed by Mastery Bridge.
