Custom Guitars and Pickups


I built my first guitar from scratch in 1987. It has been a passion of mine ever since.

Having worked for some of the best guitar manufacturers and working on classic instruments of the past in my repair work I have learned a lot about what makes a great guitar and how to build it to fit a players specific needs.

Acoustics or electric, vintage or modern. If it is a classic design that you have been lusting after or something completely new, we can work together to make the instrument of your dreams.


All of the work is done here in my shop by me. I build from my collection of prime tonewoods.  There is no CNC or outsourced work.
