Jimmy Moon established Moon Guitars in 1979 in a small workshop on the Island of Arran in Scotland. His reputation grew quickly and he was soon making and repairing instruments for many of Scotland’s finest musicians.
The move to Glasgow was made in 1985 and for the following ten years, the company produced mostly custom electric instruments for many well known bands including Big Country, Texas, Simple Minds, Wet Wet Wet and Del Amitri. The next five years saw a change in the industry, and recognising this shift, Jimmy returned to his roots and began producing acoustic guitars and the entire mandolin family.
Some current users of Moon acoustic instruments include –Adele, Ally McErlaine (Texas & Red Sky July), Bryan Adams, Dougie MacLean, Guy Berryman (Coldplay), Paolo Nutini, Trevor Rabin, Steve Earle, Peter Rowan and the Scissor Sisters.
