Hand made instruments of distinction

My name is Allen McFarlen, and I build custom guitars and ukuleles out of my workshop located in Cairns, Australia.

Every instrument is fully hand made from select timbers and finished to the highest of standards.

Owning a hand built instrument made to your specifications is easier than you may think.

I'm happy to discuss your options and ideas for a custom built instrument. It's just part of the service that you should expect when commissioning a build, or buying an instrument that I have in stock.

Contact me if you'd like any more information

It does more then I thought I could ever achieve on a uke. You could say I'm in love with my  instrument so don't leave the country in case I need a new one.

"The Style 5 parlor, it is absolutely wonderful and of course will only get better with age. Once again thank you so much for a truly beautiful instrument."

I couldn't be happier with the finished product. It isn't quite what I envisioned when we started the planning, its much much better. Thanks again."
