Every instrument is an individual build. Details such as 12 or 14 fret necks, headstock style, 6 or 12 strings and stringing geometry, cutaways and trim styles can all be decided on when an instrument is commissioned. However I am set up for certain body shapes and have developed a number of specific styles of instrument:
Steel strung, jumbo style body, 405mm wide
Steel strung model “G” Small Jumbo style, 380mm wide
Guitars inspired by a Martin model “O” made in 1900. Parlour guitar, 350mm wide. Steel or nylon strung
Tenor guitars, 295mm wide, tuned C G D A
mandolins, archtop or flat top
My solid body instruments are always totally custom.
I’m always happy to hear about interesting projects. Examples have included converting an old Hofner archtop into a surprisingly effective celtic bouzouki, making a Fender style five string mandocaster and the Frankencaster, a Telecaster Variax hybrid.
