My Story

The dream of building a guitar started around 1996. I started my first acoustic guitar in March of 2003 and completed that guitar around Christmas 2004. A Christmas present to myself. You might be thinking “That’s an awful long time to  build a guitar?”

Yes, it was a long-winded project, but one filled with tons of questions, endless research and numerous jigs. You see, I’ve done woodworking most of my life, but no woodworking project requires the patience and knowledge that building an acoustic guitar demands. And of all the woodworking projects that I have done in my lifetime, I knew from the start that this would not end with just one guitar.
