In this photograph from 1933 we see how things were done at Rose Morris's first workshop.

Equipped with a lathe, a saw-bench and a drill, these hard working chaps fashioned and refined ukes, banjos and a Jumbo acoustic called the 'Kruna' in reference to Bing Crosby's inimitable style. Necessity, being the mother of invention, led these lads to use a tyre-pump as a paint sprayer for the guitar's finish!

We still hand-build some of our instruments in our shop at No.8 Denmark St. and though we might not wear a tie to work anymore, we are still a portrait of professionalism. Come in and talk to our tech about your individual needs.
