NICKERSON
Instruments currently built in Ashville, NC since 2006. Previously built in Northampton, MA between the early 1980s and 2005.
Luthier Brad Nickerson, born and raised on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, has been building archtop guitars since 1982. Nickerson attended the Berklee College of Music, and worked in the graphic arts field for a number of years. While continuing his interest in music, Nickerson received valuable advice from New York luthier Carlo Greco, as well as Cape Cod violin builder Donald MacKenzie. Nickerson also gained experience doing repair work for Bay State Vintage Guitars (Boston), and The Fretted Instrument Workshop (Amherst, Massachusetts). With his partner Lyn Hardy, Nickerson builds archtop, flattop, and electric guitars on a custom order basis. Nickerson is also available for restorations and repair work. In 2006, Nickerson moved to Ashville, NC where he currently teaches classes on building guitars. For more information, visit Nickerson's website or contact him directly.
