Welcome! This site is dedicated to the guitars I build and play. Here you will find info on the various models I build, as well as sample repair work. I build mainly electric archtops but I also have some flat-top acoustic guitars in the works. Each model is designed and built by me and each stage of construction is carefully considered from a player's perspective. Body-forms & templates are made using the latest cnc technology, while necks and body graduations are carved by hand. The result is a guitar 'voiced' and shaped to meet individual requirements.
