Guitars

I caught the building bug a couple of years back when I made a smaller “OO” size guitar for EMMA to better fit her size and style.  I am now making a limited number of boutique acoustic guitars  each year.  Like some of the top builders out there today (Bourgeois, Collings, Santa Cruz),  I have been modeling the vintage Martins so cherished by guitarists worldwide. Please contact me If you are interested in discussing a custom build.  We can discuss playing styles, tonewoods, neck profiles, scale lengths, and setup to create a unique, custom instrument that is a perfect fit and a cherished heirloom.
