Murfitt Guitars

About the artist
Warren Murfitt was born in British Columbia and studied sculpture at the Emily Carr Institute of Art + Design. He has exhibited both nationally and internationally and has work in the Crown Collection of Canada. Murfitt Guitars “I build fine acoustic steel string guitars and I write and record country music. My studio is full of guitars, wood, music and not to mention, love”. For this year’s Culture Crawl, I will have a sampling of the 5 different models of acoustic guitars that I currently build. I will be showcasing the two new models that I made in collaboration with the brilliant guitarist, Paul Pigat (The Paul Pigat Special). I have focused my interests on sound, choice of materials and cool, clean lines. I am heavily influenced by my interest in guitar history, my own knowledge of wood and of course, George Jones. Guitar building has become not merely a passion, but rather, an addiction.
