~ Modified Dreadnought ~ Jumbo GG Design~ Concert Model and Small Body Jumbo
Please refer to my Current Guitar Models page for images
Each instrument is crafted using the best tonewoods available to me as a Luthier, with meticulous attention to detail, a synergy of high quality materials and artwork bound together to make instruments that not only sound great, but look and feel that way too.
Only the stiffest, lightest tops are used with each being individually assessed, thicknessed, braced with like species woods, carved and voiced for superb responsiveness.
Please refer to my options page for extended details on tonewoods, material choice, building appointments and all their many options. Below is a small list of materials that can be expected to be found as standard on any of my instruments.
