John Birch Guitars Ltd was founded in Rubery, 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 playing their guitars.

 In 1993 John Birch moved to Nottingham and continued John Birch Guitars up until November 2000 when John sadly passed away. 


In 2021 John Birch Guitars relocated back to it's home town of Birmingham under the new ownership of Peter Francis and the direction of its original Luthier John Diggins and his sons Michael and Andrew.

As for the future, John Birch Guitars will continue to produce professional high quality guitars with the original 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.
