You and I share a common passion for the guitar. We are drawn to its engaging and beautiful voice, intimate response to our touch, and the visual allure of its wood and form.  My mission as a builder is to craft unique, world-class concert guitars that respond to your every musical expression.
Standard Feature: Adjustable-Action Neck
With a quick and smooth turn of the key, you can fine-tune the action of your guitar without loss of tonal quality, power, or  intonation.  Each half-turn of the key changes the action height at the 12th fret by 0.5 mm.  No more need for credit card shims or appointments with luthiers!  Since 2010, the response to this feature has been so enthusiastic, it is now a standard feature.
