Enfield guitars!

Looking at the image, you might think it is a coincidence. After all, the word Enfield occurs in many contexts unrelated to the mighty motorcycle manufacturer. But take a second look and you see... a logo with a gun!

It turns out the company got the name because the father of the Owner worked at Enfield Industrial Engines in the Isle of Wight. In fact the "history" tab of the Enfield Guitars website has some details on the Enfield powerboats that were built by the Isle of Wight spinoff of Royal Enfield in the 1980's.
