Thank you for visiting. I hope you have found your way here because you have seen or heard one of my guitars and want to know more.

I specialise in building short scale, smaller bodied guitars best suited for fingerstyle playing. I can and do build bigger guitars but my emphasis is on the smaller body style. This site will contain information about build design and philosophy along with examples of the body styles currently offered.
