Musical Instrument Repairs



Haworth's founder and Master Luthier Phil Haworth built his first guitar in 1985 while teaching woodwork at Campbelltown High School. He continued to hone his skills using his new found hobby to build guitars, banjos, mandolins, mandolas and even double basses. In 1999 due to increasing demand for the Haworth instruments, Phil resigned from his full time teaching work to become a full-time luthier.

Phil has now since retired from Haworth’s and has passed on much of his knowledge about instrument repairs onto Haworth’s main repair team and his son Glenn Haworth who runs the business now. The main repair team at Haworth’s now consists of Matt Raftery and Nick Elliot who have been trained by Phil and pride themselves on their high level of workmanship.

The Haworth's team have worked with other experienced luthiers such as Andy Allen who heads the Maton Custom Shop and Gerard Gilet from Botany's Gilet Guitars, it’s not hard to see why guitars are being brought from all over the country to be serviced at Haworths.

At Haworth's we guarantee that you will receive the best service, the best workmanship and the best care. So you can rest assured - Your instrument is in the best hands...
