A Visit from Downes Guitars

There is music in the air this summer and the Guild is welcoming back Kieran Downes of Downes Guitars. He visited the Guild many years ago so this will be a great opportunity for both new members and old to see what innovations he’s come up with. Kieran will share his beginnings and his process of building, from wood selections to final set-up.process of developing electric guitars. He will also be bringing along lots of pictures of his design and building process.

Kieran has been musically inspired from a very young age and started building guitars with pre-made bodies and necks over a decade ago. That quickly developed into creating bodies and necks from scratch with his own style. This lead to the launching of Downes Guitars in 2013.

See you at the Multnomah Arts Center (MAC) on June 18. Social time starts at 6pm with the general meeting starting at 7pm. The board meeting will be held in room 7 at the MAC from 5:30-6:30 for anyone who would like to attend.

If there are any questions please contact CJ Marquardt at or 503-267-1930
