John Birch Guitars Ltd was founded in Birmingham UK in the early 1970's with John Birch, John Diggins and Arthur Baker. Together they produced a new way of guitar building and pickup design that was revolutionary. These guitars and pickups attracted interest across the globe with numerous world famous guitarists and artists using their products.

 In 1993 John Birch moved to Nottingham and continued John Birch Guitars with John Carling  up until November 2000 when sadly John Birch passed away. The business was left to John Carling and was renamed John Birch Guitars UK. 


In 2021 John Carling retired and John Birch Guitars relocated back to it's home town of Birmingham back under the direction of John Diggins with his sons Michael and Andrew and Peter Francis.

As for the future, John Birch Guitars will continue to produce professional guitars with legendary pickups from it's extensive iconic range and develop and create new products which has always been the essence of John Birch's phlilosopy.
