Keith Medley MUSIC
Keith Medley has been a guitar player as long as he can remember. He has also been a master guitar builder for much of his adult life. Keith has made custom instruments for many famous musicians but his most remarkable guitar is one he made for himself.
“I build guitars for no other reason than to make music,” Keith says. “The music I hear is more than what can be played on six strings, so after many detailed sketches and long nights of contemplation I came up with a unique 27-string instrument.”
“Building this guitar turned out to be the easy part,” Keith explains. “The hard part has been learning to play it. Through two years of bittersweet struggle between myself and these 27 strings, I determined it would not defeat me but would play the music I heard in my heart. Here is a sample of what our partnership has produced so far.”

“My good friend, Keith Medley, in all his accomplishments as a guitar designer, builder and general guitar guru, has now accomplished the ultimate in Medley design and execution of his life and career. This instrument conceived of, built in his own shop and mastered by Keith himself, creating it’s own magical, musical sound is just pure 'thought' put into 'action'. See it in the mind, build it and play it; simple as that. The most important thing, however is in the music and sound of the 27 String Medley; composed and played by Keith as well. Congratulations on an AMAZING accomplishment with a most extraordinary instrument; now go out and do it!”

Keith Medley is without a doubt, one of the most gifted and fascinating people I have had the good fortune to know.
He has composed deeply creative music for the very unique 27 String Medley instrument that he has designed and built himself. He is a true renaissance man.
