About Us

Rob Bowman working in Gordon Smith Guitars workshop


Gordon Smith are the UK’s longest running electric guitar manufacturer.

We were founded in 1974 by Gordon Whitham and John Smith and since then Gordon Smith Guitars have powered some of the world’s most famous bands.

Gordon Smith is now part of the Auden Musical Instrument Company and the team at Auden have taken over the production with the same level of skill and dedication as the original founders. With a massive investment in new machines, tools and people, Gordon Smith is set to take on the next fifty years as the UK's favourite guitars.
