Hand Crafted Guitars

Traditionally Styled

Vintage Tone

Light & Resonant


My guitars are built one at a time, with good resonant wood, hot-hide glue & French Polish Shellac.

They are light-weight & strong, simple & elegant, pretty but not overly-ornamented.

They are built for the enjoyment of the player.

Since 1975 building & repairing Acoustic & Electric guitars

   The Bluestown

 

A Bluestown L-0, Honduras Mahogany top, back,   flamed sides, & neck. Cocobolo fret board, Brazilian Rosewood bridge, Black Walnut binding & trim.

Its deep open voice, the balanced and articulate tone is a product of the light-weight build, scalloped spruce bracing, hot-hide glue construction, and French Polish Shellac finish.

The Bluestown L-0 is my homage to a 30's Gibson L-0, with 14-3/4" @ lower bout & 4-1/4" deep.
