Welcome to Godfrey Guitars

Les Godfrey has been building electric basses and guitars since 1995.

Les has had the pleasure of studying with legendary luthier and musician Carl Thompson.
Always being fascinated with the double bass, it was fitting that a Godfrey bass would share similar motifs and aesthetics, but still retain the functionality of a classic electric bass. Thus, the Dragonetti was born.
A truly unique instrument in its own right, The Dragonetti was designed for great balance and ease of playability. Each instrument is entirely hand carved with an acute attention to detail. Beautiful scrolls and an arch top adorn each Dragonetti bass - crafted from only the choicest woods. With classic lines and hand applied finishes, these instruments are truly timeless works of playable art.

Enjoy the site and have Dragonetti dreams!
