Art Guitars



I started my instrument making career in 1984 building radically different basses and guitars that were called "art guitars." In the years since my styles have changed more toward the traditional and mainstream of guitar design in order to make a living. Now, many years since, I have returned to the original inspiration and desire to continue my exploration into "art guitars" with renewed gusto!


These instruments are all fully functional with unique voices and are built around typical scales and specs, but using various non-traditional building techniques and materials.


My intention with these instruments is to re-interpret the form, to ride the line between Craft and Art and mix in some Funk. I'm searching for the sweet spot.
