I make guitars in Minneapolis, They are hand made and one of a kind guitars. My mission is to create instruments that are beautiful, have superior sound quality and are a joy to play. I accomplish this by useing time honored designs and materials and methods that have proven to be worthy. I use a dovetail neck/body joint, scalloped X bracing, hot hide glue and lacquer finish. You could say that I am a traditionalist when it comes to guitar design. The guitar is a complex object and it is important to look to the past to learn what has worked and build from that knowledge.
