Mervyn Davis

Mervyn Davis began working full time as a guitar luthier in 1978. Located in South Africa, Mervyn had unique access to materials he used in making his instruments and because he was in an area with few guitar builders he was able to create a strong and loyal customer base. Over the years he has expanded the style of guitars he creates as well as the materials and designs used in his inlay work. However, the true beauty of his handiwork is the sound of his instruments, perhaps a reflection of the violin luthier skills of his father and grandfather years ago.
