Making a Custom Guitar
First Notes on a Custom Guitar
The Design and Building Process
I like to get to know as much about each you and your music as I can before design and construction begin. Customers often visit me at my workshop for this reason. We can also arrange a series of online consultations so I can get to know you, listen and watch how you approach your instrument and music. We discuss woods, size, body type, scale length, nut width, fingerboard radius, finishes and design details. Customers often have design ideas in mind. I try to hone those ideas so they feel part of the process; you, the customer, ARE part of the process after all. My goal is that an instrument as unique as its owner is born.
I feel blessed to have built up a diverse customer base from around the world.
