Hand Crafted Guitars styled with Vintage Charm

 


Classic simplicity is always foremost in my work.

But before everything else, I work to achieve a pleasing tone that harkens back 75 years.

I've been building Guitars since 1975, one at a time.

John in Vermont had this to say:

"I think you really succeeded in bringing a vintage sound and look into the 21st century. "I'm looking forward to some serious front porch playing with it this summer."

 

My "Grand Concert" Guitar

You can see and hear a recent recording of two of my instruments, and a short story of me and my shop, at my youtube channel:

Here's a view of the wood storage wall and "lay-down" bench.

I do scalloped bracing on most of my guitars. Shown is a 00-Sabine top.

This is my headstock joint, the Spanish V-Joint, similar to one used by Martin in the early days, and of course, Spanish luthiers. A very strong joint, it allows me to choose the choicest wood for the neck shaft. My necks are normally "built-up", as a solid wood neck is very wasteful of precious Honduras Mahogany.
