"Visually and sonically, the Dakota is the most graceful reimagining of Ray Dietrich’s original concept we’ve played so far"

Ivison Guitars is a small, boutique electric guitar company based in Worcestershire, UK.

Helmed by Neil Ivison, a guitarist and guitar tech of over 20 years, who retired from international touring in 2018 and set up a busy repair and luthiery shop.

Steadily gaining a worldwide reputation, we build guitars for discerning players across the globe.


All Ivison guitars are built, one at a time, from raw lumber billets to the final hand buffed 'vintage patina' finish using the finest quality materials available and using both traditional & modern construction methods and techniques. 


We use Honduran & African Mahogany, Korina, Eastern Maple, Indian Rosewood, Celluloid Inlays, Celluloid Binding and Pickguards, Aniline Dyes, Non-Plasticised Nitrocellulose Lacquer and the finest pickups available, hand wound specifically for us here in the UK

Every guitar is meticulously built and set up in our workshop, deep in the Worcestershire countryside.
