About Us


Our Story

In a small West Cumbrian town from a love of music and guitars, Dust N Bones was born.  Focusing mainly on handmade, bespoke cigar box guitars made from up cycled materials.  

Family orientated business with husband Al making the guitars, wife Joni doing the social media side and son Axel as the reason for doing this.


Unique Musical Instruments

Each of our guitars can be made exactly how you want ensuring a truly unique piece.  It's been said that music is the language of the soul, a concept we at Dust N Bones have taken to heart and try to show in all of our bespoke handmade creations.
