Richard Morgan loved the sound and music of mandolins long before he knew what they were.  Richard was born in 1957 in Sidney, Australia and the mandolins and guitars he designs and builds are the distillation of many years of careful design work. His unique instruments open up a whole new range of sonic possibilities within a very durable design.

He now resides in Mt Isa, Australia where he builds a variety of mandolins, mandolas, octave mandolins, mandocellos and guitars, and continuously innovates and he occasionally blogs at theMandolinTuner.
