Have your own instrument customised:



Stand out from other musicians by having your own instrument customised with a design / wording to represent your image.  This guitar was built by the incredibly skilled Felix Byrne with bespoke Cowshed pyrography, mace especially for talented actor and musician Benjamin Hardy-Phillips. 



This guitalele was ordered as a gift for a very talented UK-based singer songwriter, Steffan James.  Using his own imagery and logo, it was an honour to work with the customer to create a one of kind gift for this fantastic musician.   



Cowshed Creations will work with you to bring your design ideas to like.   All burning is done by hand and we ensure the original instruments are cared for and respected throughout the rejuvenation process.
