Otis A Thomas Violins and Guitars – For the last thirty years, I have been working as a violin and guitar maker at my home here in the hills above St. Ann’s Bay on Cape Breton Island in Canada’s Nova Scotia. Although I specialize primarily in violins and secondarily in guitars, I have on occasion also turned my hand to mandolins, harps, and various other stringed instruments.

My instruments are all individually crafted, one at a time, with care and respect — based on original designs, but built with an eye to the deep traditions that inform the luthier’s art.
