Pilgrim Acoustic Guitars

Pilgrim Acoustic Guitars


One guitar name which created a real stir in acoustic guitar circles following its introduction back in the 1970’s, and which was available into the mid to late 1980’s, was that of Paul Tebbutt’s Pilgrim brand.

A UK company – based in Leicestershire, Pilgrim’s small-scale production ensured that the guitar’s premier quality construction was always the prime focus, even if it did mean that production levels never ran into big numbers.

The impressive performance ensured that Pilgrim guitars gained cult status amongst players of the time, garnering many accolades and awards, and are still sought after today.
