Welcome to Specht Guitars, the home of tone! One of Nanaimo’s best guitar techs, luthier Oliver Specht has been making and repairing guitars for over 20 years and has earned a reputation as both a fine instrument
maker and restorer. Specht Guitars are known for their quality of design, tone, and playability.
The careful selection of materials, custom approach to design, and excellence in craftsmanship are evident both in seeing and hearing these beautiful instruments. One of the specialties that has emerged in Oliver’s work over the decades has been his love of unique guitars; parlor, terz, and especially, the baritone.
Check out some audio samples and pictures of the deep, rich sounding baritones. If you have an instrument that needs some attention, or are interested in purchasing an instrument that’s custom built for you, please peruse the site and send me a message from our contact page.

Your Ideas Made Real
Every instrument is traditionally hand-crafted using high quality woods and materials. Speak with Oliver about your needs for tone, shape, bracing, scale, or any option you need to complete your dream guitar. He has developed a number of innovative resonance and projection techniques inside the guitar and on the woods themselves which allow impressive volume and articulation.
