Welcome to my site! Here you will find info on the various guitars I build. As most of my time is spent playing the guitar, I build just a few instruments each year. Each model is designed and built by me and each stage of construction is carefully considered from a player's perspective. The result is a guitar which responds to an individual's needs. I believe the instrument should be comfortable to hold and play, and there should be no distractions or short-falls in a performance situation. Most of these guitars can be produced as acoustic-only versions and in addition to the listed models, I welcome the opportunity to work with individuals on the development of new instrument designs.
