RNS Guitars and Ukuleles

RNS Guitars and Ukuleles offers individual, bespoke stringed  instruments, including a range of unique electric and acoustic guitars and ukuleles made by Richard Nichol-Smith in Buln Buln, near Warragul, one hour drive east of Melbourne.

Using solid, natural finish timbers, each instrument features unique visual and tonal character, combined with great playing comfort, providing a very practical player’s instrument as well as attractive work of art.

Whilst most instrunments feature RNS designs, if your needs are more custom orientated, then one off custom designs or timbers can also be provided.

A range of quality maintenance and repair services are also offered including set ups, fretwork and electrics for guitars, ukuleles and mandolins.

This website aims to provide as much information as possible on the RNS electric and acoustic guitars and ukulele models, as well as services. However, pictures and words cannot provide the actual feel and sound of the instruments, or the quality of workmanship, which is what really counts. The instruments for sale (See the For Sale tab) are therefore available to try out by appointment at the Buln Buln workshop.
