About Steve Barkman

From a childhood and youth boat-building with his father in his joinery workshop, Steve moved on to a trade in automotive machining, fitting and turning, and servicing agricultural machinery.

Since childhood, Steve has had an intense interest in playing guitar and has done so in local bands and at many festivals.

In the late 1970's, Steve began Guitar Repairs for local retailers and individual customers. This eventually led to construction of his first guitar in 1989.

In early 1998, Steve became a full-time Luthier.
