My approach to creating guitars is based in my roots of classical guitar technique and ear training learned while I was getting my BA in Music in college. Developing a critical ear is ultimately what led me to dive into the world of listening to the subtle nuances and differences in handmade instruments. I saw an exhibit of rare and vintage guitars at the Guild of American Lutherie gathering in early 2000’s and was mostly struck by a few classicals that were built incredibly light and very responsive with rich round voices. My classical is based on a drawing that renowned luthier Jeff Elliott did for GAL of a 1943 Hermann Hauser classical guitar. The result is a lightweight, dynamic instrument with a warm present bass, crisp round highs, and a full rich mids.
