Custom Handmade Classical Guitar Projects

Special Projects

A symbiosis of friendship, craft and sound.

I unapologetically refute any conflict between time dedicated to beautiful craftsmanship and time devoted to acoustic refinement. I see no purpose in classical guitarists restraining their creative impulse. No matter how subtle or extraordinary, let's take courage and create an instrument of artistic rapture, a timeless expression of imagination and beauty.

Featured Projects

Here are some recent guitar projects that represent some fresh ideas inspired by both customer requests and my inability to surpress the creative impulse.

Latest Osage Guitar

Maclura Pomifera

I have been receiving indications that my efforts to showcase Osage Orange in the classical guitar world are bearing some fruit. Here is one custom project for a wonderful customer in Texas that represents the tonewood well.

The Maple Guitar

Latest Maple Project

This is an exhilarating commission from a creative customer that spanned the pandemic years and has finally come into reality. It was a great opportunity to play, create and challenge myself.

The Nine String

La Murcia

Commissioned by guitarist Stanley Yates, this guitar pairs the traditional treble stings with bass courses to place Baroque guitar music within the context of the modern sound.
