Ed Claxton

Since building his first guitars in Austin, Texas over 40 years ago, Ed Claxton continues to refine and perfect his craft and further develop the prototypes that he built in those formative years. His main objective is centered around the tone and playability of his instruments, and his designs reflect his attitude that “less is more”.

Ed currently offers five different models of acoustic guitars ranging from the parlor sized “Composer” to the 12-fret “Malabar” and 14-fret “EM” small jumbo, and traditional “OM”. He makes a classical “Concert” model as well.

Ed lives with his wife Margie and their beloved Golden Retriever Rosie in Santa Cruz, California.
