Most of my work is commission based so anything goes, but generally the instruments I build fall into three broad categories -


Steel String Guitars

All models are built uniquely to suit the individual. There are two body sizes that I generally use as standard baseline - the Academy model which is roughly OM sized, and the slightly larger Auditorium Model. Other body sizes are built to commission.



Archtop Guitars

My archtop guitars are designed and built as acoustic instruments but they can have a floating humbucker pickup included as an option.



Mandolins, citterns, bouzoukis. Big, small, hand carved - endless possibilities exist in the mandolin family. So I restrict myself to the larger instruments - octave mandolin, cittern, and bouzouki with a common body size and variations in string courses and scale length. ( I'll do an F style carved instrument if you ask me nicely ). If you've ever tried to buy a case for a mandolin, you'll know why I stick to a common body size.



Here are some photo galleries of a few recent instruments - Galleries
