The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

Peter Hopkins

Peter Hopkins hand builds arch top guitars to order from his shop in Penticton, British Columbia. While he focuses on carved top and back instruments, he builds both traditional full depth acoustic-body archtops and modern thin-bodied dual-pickup models.

In 1973, Hopkin’s father built an A-5 style mandolin, catching Peter’s attention. He’s been fascinated with acoustic arch top guitars ever since.
