Following a lifelong love of woodworking as a hobby, having worked with cabinetry, home construction projects, furniture building and refinishing, David MacCubbin started his lutherie career in 2002, building his first guitar using William Cumpiano's and Jonathan Natelson's textbook "Guitarmaking, Tradition and Technology" as his guide. He took the opportunity to study with William Cumpiano in 2003 at his Northampton, Massachusetts shop. Since that time, David has continued to develop his lutherie skills, transitioning from a part-time guitarmaker to full time luthier in early 2007. He also attended Ervin Somogyi's guitar voicing master class in 2007, where he gained much greater insight into the relationships among choice of woods, top bracing patterns, construction techniques, and their effects on the resultant sound and response of the guitar.

Building guitars for fingerstyle players is the focus of David's efforts, and using the skills and knowledge he has gained from his teachers and continued development through his own experimentation, he works to achieve the perfect balance in playability, tone, sustain, and impeccable workmanship. He pays very strict attention to details, both inside the guitar and what is visible to the player. When commissioned to build a custom guitar, he works closely with the player to understand all of the player's requirements and desires, and maintain this close communication throughout the building process.

David MacCubbin's shop is located in suburban Baltimore, MD, where he builds about 10 to 12 guitars a year. He also works as a guitar repair technician at Appalachian Bluegrass Shoppe in Catonsville, MD. For more information, see maccubbinguitars.com
