David in his workshop with a sunburst Churchill Guitar

David Churchill was born in London in 1949. He came to Australia in 1971, and after seeing much of the country, settled in Adelaide. Here he had his first workshop for 6 years before moving to Victoria. He now has had his current workshop for the last 28 years in an old corner shop in the historic city of Ballarat.

David has been hand building guitars for the last 35 years and has a reputation for being one of Australia’s leading steel string guitar makers.

All guitars are built by David, using only aged timbers and specializing in cedar tops with Indian rosewood back and sides.
