Welcome to My Workbench!

Hello, and Welcome to my WorkBench.

My approach to building guitars is to actively participate in the creative process of music – involving the composer, the player and the means of performance. Together we transmit the intellectual and emotional content of music into a fine instrument to server the musician for years to come.

I have the opportunity to create something approaching perfection by ordering form out of chaos; through the creation of that object which has a life beyond itself, my guitar becomes a new and unique voice in this universe. I enjoy the experience of total immersion in the work as well as the creative challenge of evolving and keeping pace with the changing technology and musical tastes, I dedicate my work to you, the lover of the classical and gypsy jazz guitars.
