My attention to each individual instrument and my traditional techniques allow for great flexibility in building. Custom building can involve as small a change as the width of the finger board or a complete designing of the shape and size of a guitar. I also build for a specific sound or playing style. While I have developed a standard line of instruments, I am happy to collaborate with a player to build an instrument that is uniquely personal. Many of the minor changes are part of my normal building services and involve no extra cost.
