2019 Guitarist Magazine Review
9/10 – Guitarist Choice Award
“Who is Seth Baccus? Pretty much guitar-making royalty. Seth has had guitar experience at the highest level as the stepson of Andy Manson, whom we know as one of the UK making founders, along with his brother, Hugh. Seth worked at Mansons Guitar Shop for 12 years, eight as the manager, and built his first guitar in 2004.”
“He’s had on-the-road experience with John Paul Jones (including the Led Zeppelin reunion rehearsals and live shows) and worked with local mates Muse.”
“The detail and craft is wonderful. A finish like this would show any slight tool mark, but there aren’t any. The fingerboard edges are lightly rounded, the highly polished frets have virtually domed ends, the tangs are notched so you don’t see them. Can a top nut be a thing of beauty? Well, this one is superbly cut and shaped, not a sharp edge in sight. Look and learn. “
“With a full-feeling, beautifully rounded C shape, the neck is definitely in the ‘one of the best we’ve played’ category”
“But it’s not about just the craft: this is a hugely usable, inspirational, pro-level guitar”
“Here is a guitar that you’ll get completely lost in. We’re not joking when we say we had to limit our test time, otherwise we’d never get these words written.”

What a piece of rock history!
It was Seth’s pleasure and an honour to work on Tom’s guitar for him. He gave it a new lease of life and Tom’s out there rocking it on stages right now!!
Inside The Making
Here at Seth Baccus Guitars, part of this means buying materials from sustainable sources where ever possible and also wasting as little as possible. We always source timber with FSC or Rain forest Alliance certification where ever possible, meaning the wood comes from well managed, sustainable forests, providing a sustainable income for the local communities.
