Joseph Ellis is a certified luthier born and raised in Charlottetown, PEI. In his younger teenage years he first developed an interest in guitar driven music and quickly transitioned into learning to play guitar. A few years later an interest started to take root in setting up and modifying instruments to achieve better playability and sound. This turned into a casual hobby, evolving into the professional service now offered here. Joseph studied at Timeless Instruments School of Lutherie under master luthier David Freeman. At the beginning of 2020 he earned an Advanced Diploma of Lutherie, as well as certifications for acoustic and electric guitar construction, and stringed instrument repair.
