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

 

Steel String Guitars

Most commonly the guitars I build are OM sized, with some body shape options according to the player's preference and two different bracing patterns that I use according to the use of the guitar.

 

 

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

Mandolins, citterns, bouzouki's,  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. Although I'll do an F style instrument if you ask me nicely. (If you've ever tried t buy a case for a mandolin, you'll know why I stick to a common body size)
