Beautifully Crafted Guitars

Flexibility in the design and construction of custom instruments is what I believe helps to set me apart from other builders.

My goal with each project is to produce an instrument that will perfectly match each customer's needs and tastes. My customers are given the unique opportunity to be as involved as they desire in the design of their instrument. Of course, I am quite happy to make suggestions, drawing on my years of experience building all different styles.

The guitars and instruments you will see on my web site are a sampling of what I have built for customers over the past 30 years. I have included some brief descriptions for most of the instruments.

By not having any set models there are no limits to what I can offer my customers. This challenging approach has allowed me to refine and expand my lutherie skills and has given me the opportunity to collaborate on some very unique projects, some of which you will see on this website.

I do not have apprentices or assistants. All of the instruments are built by me alone, giving me complete control over the manufacturing process and ensuring that my customers’ desires and interests are always fully incorporated into their instrument. I am as meticulous about the tone, playability and appearance of an 18” archtop guitar as I am with a diminutive soprano ukulele and am certain that you'll be satisfied with your custom-made instrument.

The instruments featured on these pages are one of a kind. Some may be available for immediate sale but mostly these are examples of my work. I can make an instrument similar to one that you see here, or if you like, you can design your own.
