Hello thanks for visiting my site.
I guess you are wondering who Is this guy?
Well, let me tell you a bit about myself.
I am an artist, musician and designer.
I grew up drawing, playing music, fixing and making things since I was a kid.
I have been repairing guitars, and other instruments for over thirty years. I have been building instruments for around twenty-five years. Mostly for myself and a small amount of word of mouth clients.
After attending The School Of Visual Arts, during the 80's in NY, I made most of my living as a Designer working in the publishing field. I have designed book covers for Penguin Books, and Worked at Marvel Comics.
Here is a link to some of my publishing design work.
Lets face it, publishing is a shrinking if not dying industry. So after getting laid off from a long term job in educational publishing, I decided to take my guitar craft, and expand my instrument business.Now here I am, currently a one man operation designing and building guitars. (building this website, etc)
My goal is to combine artistry and design with engineering and craftsmanship. I Strive to build the finest playing and sounding guitars available. Combine that with a striking visual presence, that are unique, sometimes retro, with a bit of futurism thrown in.
I will be filling this bio and build philosophy out over time. Check back for updates, more pics, build and repair adventure logs and stuff. I will be trying to fill out content as much as I can when not working on guitars.
Please email me with any questions you have about my instruments
