The Guitars

2016-05-28-08-59-53Each guitar receives my full attention at every step of the building process. From the selection and resawing of the rough lumber to the final set-up, my priority is the quality of the final product.

The standard string scale is 650 mm. Nut width is 52 mm and 62 mm at the 12th fret. These measurements, as well as the neck thickness and profile, can be altered to best fit the playing style of the player. A 20th fret is also available as an option.

Shape

2016-01-31-11-31-43Largely inspired by the body outline of the guitars built by the great spanish luthiers José Luis Romanillos and Antonio de Torres, I have derived my own shape. While slightly smaller in size than most modern instruments, it is far from lacking in the low-frequency department, or any frequency department, for that matter.

Rosette and decorations

tuileEvery rosette tile, every binding and every purfling is meticulously made in the shop, by me. These decorative elements are made entirely out of naturally coloured wood.2016-01-31-11-33-52

Different tones of red (Bloodwood) and browns (Walnut, Rosewood and Mahogany) contrast with the pale Maple and dark Wenge veneers throughout the guitar to give it an inherently warm look.

Wood

2015-12-10-16-15-07The standard model features European spruce for the top and Indian rosewood for the back and sides. The neck is made of Spanish cedar and the fretboard of ebony. Other wood species are available, please contact me for different options.
