Someone once said that a well made violin in the hands of a talented player can produce an almost voice-like quality capable of expressing all manner of moods and feeling. I've often wondered how men like Andre Guarneri and Antonio Stradiveri would feel if they were here today to witness one of their priceless works of art in a performance.

Since an early age I've been fascinated with vintage stringed instruments. The mandolins, guitars and banjos of the 1920's and 1930's have always intrigued me.  I feel that is when some of the best instruments in existence today were made.  The goal of many of today's luthiers is to achieve that vintage tone in a new instrument.

 

At I specialize in hand-crafted mandolins and arch top guitars.  By close attention to detail of the traditional building techniques and the use of beautiful tone woods, my goal is to create an instrument with exceptional tone and volume to produce a well-balanced voice.  Luthier - mandolin makerA voice that will stand the test of time.
