Since early in the 1980s John has used custom made guitars by Australian luthier Greg Smallman. Smallman guitars are much in demand and I believe there is a long waiting list to obtain one. John chooses these because of their excellent treble response. This is achieved by using an extremely thin top (cedar in the case of guitars used by John Williams), which is supported by a lattice-style bracing system made of balsa wood and carbon fibre. The back and sides are laminated rosewood and are very stiff which helps achieve good volume and bass response.
