Guitar No. 80

Date Completed: 
Monday, March 14, 2022

This guitar was an order inspired by the efforts placed into "Extasia". I wanted to over-deliver so the project spanned a bit more than a year. All that time placed into custom marquetry and inlay results in something very special and it's a great privilege to find customers that are willing to encourage this kind of guitar. It pushes me to keep reaching for higher levels of craftsmanship and beauty.

These projects are a real test of aesthetic sensibility for me. I am very self conscious about every choice in color scheme and combination of wood.

My hope is to achieve a guitar that is about bringing joy and wonder to those who play and see such an instrument.
