Guitarist magazine visit the workshop

Seth Baccus built his first guitar in 2004, but by that time, he’d already been part of the guitar industry for seven years, working in Manson’s guitar shop.

His stepfather is master luthier Andy Manson and so Seth’s formative years were set against the background hum of crafting guitars - it’s no surprise, then, he has ended up in his own dedicated facility near Falmouth in Cornwall, turning out some world-class instruments.

If you caught our recent review, you’ll have seen we awarded his Nautilus Classic a score of 4.5 out of 5. It was well deserved, too; the instrument was fabulous in every respect.
