Good morning guys,
We would like to introduce ourselves to you all. We are called Sbrothers Composite instruments, we hand-make 100% carbon fiber guitars based in Derbyshire Uk.

As everyone will know starting a business on your own is very hard. We have done everything ourselves website, photos etc. So they are not yet perfect but getting there. Our website is www.sbrotherscomposite.co.uk we are in the process of getting it to higher standards.

If anyone would like to try our guitars you are more than welcome to come to our workshop and try them but so you can get an idea of the unique sound please see the YouTube review one of our customers has done with his SB-02 custom made carbon guitar which he compares it to his Martins D35. https://youtu.be/bb3AwkZttdo


We have 3 different models at the moment Dreadnought, Auditorium and a Roundback (Also an Electric guitar which is coming soon.)

Please let us know if you would like more information or advise. We are happy to contribute to the forum.

    Seems that way.  

    I listened to their clips and they seem to be the fullest sounding of CF guitars I have come across.  Always difficult to gauge a guitar's quality by YT videos but I'd say their guitars sound a richer and superior in tonality than the more well more well known CF guitar makers eg Rainsong & Emerald.  

    I was very impressed with the SBros guitar sound through onboard amplification as well. 

    IMO, best CF guitar I have heard so far.  

    @Sbrothers just out of interest around how much do your guitars weigh?  Do you plan to make to make any other body sizes eg an OM?

    @earwighoney Thank you for your great comment.! Yes I agree with you our guitars have a very unique tone very much different to rainsong & emerald, which that is what we wanted to achieve so thank you for your compliment :) The weight of them range from 2kg-2.4kg.
    We custom build any guitar requested if this interests you?

    Thanks for the info, 2kg seems very light indeed, and with a light shell case IMO your guitars would make a great gigging acoustic. 

    I'm not looking for a new acoustic right now, but just my uneducated suggestion is possibly an OM sized model could be tempting to those who may be interested.

    Yes they are perfect for gigging indoors and outdoors. Hopefully in the near future we will have OM, bass guitars etc

    I reckon a 330/335 style beast would work well in a CF construction.

    Good morning @spark240 they are available in different carbon fiber colours but if you like the idea of a carbon fiber guitar but don’t want the carbon viewable it’s possible as we can spray paint it different colours which also looks great. Thanks for your message.
