Martin Pratley - Owner of Pratley Guitars

In South Queensland Martin Pratley is creating unique timbres from native timber.

Guitar making has been a labour of love to Pratley for over 20 years. He spent his youth in the wood shop with his father, a carpenter, before going into industrial design at university. An avid surfer and camper, he pioneered a guitar that packs down by removing the neck and earned a degree of fame for his invention.
