Fine Hand-made Guitars
My acoustic guitars are all handmade from the finest solid woods.
I build steel string guitars, with an emphasis on fingerstyle playing, and classical guitars.
I would love to build you a custom designed guitar, I have many sizes and
combination of woods. I will work with you to refine the design of your special instrument.
I have a passion for building (and playing!) guitars that look, feel, play, and sound great.
If you check my testimonials page, I think you'll find that my customers agree that I achieve those goals.
You can also listen to my guitars at the sound clips page.
Having a custom guitar built for you is probably one of your dreams. I can make that dream come true.
Please check HERE for my Specials Page,
where I display complete instruments that are ready to ship
(after a final check of the setup).
Please click here for pricing and here for an explanation of how buying a custom guitar works.
Please click here for a gallery of my guitars and data on their sizes, here for wood choices, and here to contact me.
Each size/style of guitar can be viewed here:

My article, The Guitar As a Structure, was published in January in American Lutherie #100,
the journal of the Guild of American Luthiers.
You can read it here (their published version has better graphics!)
