Luthier ,Nick Carpenter, builds a wide range of instruments.  The following list is what is available for sale at the moment.  Nick prefers not to build to customers specs/requests as he likes to create his own distinct and unique range of instruments.


These beautiful guitars are created with an unpretentious approach to instrument making. With a natural, organic design, common through-out the Wildwood range, these guitars are truly stunning works of art.
They feature a solid Sitka Spruce top, Jarrah back and sides, bolt on Queensland Maple neck, jarrah fretboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, Gotoh tuners, 2 way truss rod and the beautiful “Wild Design” motif on the soundboard. Scale length is 25.4″ (645mm), lower bout is 16″ (405mm). The LR Baggs Stage Pro pickup system is installed on board (highly regarded as one of the best brands on the market!). The side mounted StagePro preamp and an undersaddle element are the perfect accompaniment for this performance ready instrument.

Acoustic Guitar with LR Baggs StagePro Pickup  $1799
