Hello, and welcome to my website. I thank you for taking some time to look through the various sections, and encourage you to visit the Electric Violin Gallery page so that you may see some of the instruments I have made.
I have been working as luthier since 1999. The most important aspect of my work as a luthier is to offer a player the opportunity to, literally, design and create the instrument that they have always wanted, usually an instrument that they have not seen anywhere else.
You choose the shape and design of the instrument, the number of strings the instrument will have (4,5,6 or 7), what wood the instrument will be made from (even select the piece of wood yourself), the type of bridge and electronics that will be used, and whether you would like to use traditional pegs or tuners similar to those used on electric guitars. All of these aspects – within the limits of physics and patent considerations – can be decided by you if you desire to have an instrument made or commissioned.
