Construction & philisophy
All guitars that I make are made of the highest quality materials available and completely hand crafted, shaped from rough wood to a finished guitar mainly with sharp hand tools. As few machines as possible are incorporated into the building process for two reasons: I find great pleasure doing as much as I possibly can with hand tools, not so much by pushing a router in a jig. And I think that this shows up in the end result, a machine can never replicate the delicate shapes of a craftsman's hand.
My deep passion for the american steel string guitars from the "Golden era" of guitar building have influenced me to build guitars with materials and construction techniques from this era. I focus on building exacting replicas of these guitar, both sound, feel and looks has to be right. I have several different options for tonewood but will always use the same building techniques as was being used back in the days when some of the best steel string guitars that exist were made.
