Mark Kett 13 Fret Brazilian Rosewood 000 Body Guitar, 2010

Mark Kett 13 Fret Brazilian Rosewood 000 Body Guitar, 2010

It’s fairly unusual to see a Mark Kett guitar for sale. His order book currently extends to 2021, so new guitars don’t appear in shops. His custom inlay work is more visible, as it appears on guitars by other builders including Sergei de Jonge, David Wren, Bourgeois Guitars, Linda Manzer, Frank Brothers, Marc Beneteau, and many others. His work was included in the ‘Group of Seven’ guitar set at the McMichael Gallery.
