I want to hear a sumptuous acoustic guitar tone, one that floods the senses, inspires new music and makes the instrument difficult to put down.

I want to hold an amazingly comfortable guitar that responds to my every touch and supplies anything that is requested of it.

I want a guitar that is as beautiful to look upon as it is wonderful to play.

That is the kind of instrument I build.

This guitar is deep bodied and features a double-X bracing pattern, resulting in an instrument that is bright but not harsh, loud but not overbearing, and full sounding with no muddiness.

This guitar features a curly Sinker Redwood soundboard with Claro Walnut back and sides. Visual features include a Macassar Ebony fingerboard, pinless bridge, and headplate, Ebony body binding, soundhole binding and end graft, Walnut and Paua rosette, Paua “Soundwaves” inlay, Venetian cutaway and a comfortable, transitional arm bevel. This instrument utilizes a traditional X-bracing pattern made from Red Spruce and Carbon Fiber laminates, and is spray finished using waterborne lacquer.

I'm playing my instrumental "Run, Don't Walk", recorded direct using a James May UltraTonic pickup (attached to the bridgeplate, inside the body of the guitar). I have added a little reverb, but no EQ.
