Photo Galleries

hereI've chosen these particular instruments as being representative of the style of instruments that I build. Select an instrument to open up a picture gallery. There are some more photo galleries here , but I don't post photos of everything that I do, it's too time consuming.

Academy Guitar

The Academy guitar is my own take on the traditional OM style of guitar. Similar in size, but with more curves. This particular instrument has a Sitka Spruce top and Indian Rosewood back and sides. It also has one of my favourite rosettes.

Parlour Guitar

European Spruce Top, Sapele back and sides with a slotted headstock. I like parlour guitars. A lot.

Archtop Guitar

Handcarved Spruce top, hand carved Flame Maple back / sides. 3 piece laminated maple neck with contrast striping. Floating humbucker pickup. Mmm, nice.

Octave Mandolin

l love the symmetry of this model. There are two instruments in the gallery - one in Cedar with a slotted headstock and one in Spruce with a traditional mandolin headstock. Both have Sapele back and sides.

Academy Guitar

Sitka Spruce Top, Santos Rosewood back and sides. There's a Budhhist hint in this instrument.

Academy Guitar

Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood with Spalted Maple inlays. I admit I like the rosette on this instrument.

Auditorium Guitar

Sitka Spruce and Tasmanian Blackwood with Amboyna inlays. The Auditorium guitar has a larger body size compared to the Academy model.

Auditorium Guitar with Cutaway

Two Auditorium Guitars with a cutaway -one in Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood, the other in Sitka Spruce and Tasmanian Blackwood.

There are some rosette designs here and some inlay work here.


Once upon a time I also made electric guitars. Not any more, but here's an example for completeness.
