2015 is here and with it, a shiny new guitar. This guitar is the result of a collaboration between myself and a good friend to whom this guitar now belongs. I usually steer away from requests involving shapes or specs that I haven’t already put together. But every once and a while someone comes along that […]

And now for something completely different (Dr. Teeth Bass)

By |March 21st, 2014|

We all have our guilty pleasures. Mine is Top 40 Radio and pointy guitars.I had bought a surf green Stratocaster a couple years ago, mainly because I loved the way it looked. I don’t really play much guitar but I hoped that this guitars allure would be the incentive I needed to move up to […]

Custom Walnut Boomer

By |March 3rd, 2014|

New to the world in 2014 is this Custom Walnut Boomer. My initial thought when designing this model would be that it was an ideal option for those who crave sustain and clear articulation simultaneously.

Glider Double Neck Bass

By |June 18th, 2012|

This Double Neck bass was quite an undertaking for me. Jost Eckhardt approached me about building him a double neck that featured small objects that would be worked into the body. I have always liked the look of small shadow boxes as frames so I suggested that we embed the objects in small rectangular cavities. […]

Yellowheart and Wenge 8 String in Progress

By |January 25th, 2012|

I’ve been steadily working on an 8 string bass for myself in between other projects. The through-neck has presented some unique difficulties paired with how I’ve been laminating all the pieces. I’ve approached the process fairly intuitively because of this. The geometric pattern top has to be attached separately from the through neck and the […]

I’ve recently embarked on an exciting new self initiated project. Basically, I’ve been dying to make something using wenge and yellowheart exclusively. The idea is that this is going to be a top and headstock plate for an 8 string bass that will be mine. You can see the process photos below of different pattern […]
