I’m currently working on building a new guitar model inspired by the 1930′s Gibson Advanced Jumbo. This guitar will be well suited for flatpicking and agressive fingerstyle playing. Pictures to follow. I will be showing this guitar at the Montreal Guitar Show.

Frantically getting ready for the Woodstock Invitational guitar show. I plan to bring three guitars to the show.
One will be a Model S15 Ascent Series Venetian cutaway with Honduran back and sides and a Lutz spruce top appointed with burl wood purfling.
The second is a traditional S15 with East Indian rosewood and a Sitka spruce top appointed with fine multiline purfling.
The third is a traditional S14 with Ziricote back and sides and redwood top appointed with black mother of pearl and cocobolo.
Hopefully pictures of these guitars will be posted when they are completed!

I recently completed a prototype incorporating some concepts I have been working on for quite awhile. I believe this new design concept has a lot to offer to a variety of players.
Details of this exciting new concept can be found here.
This guitar as well as the second prototype will be on display at the Woodstock Invitational Luthiers Showcase on October 23 & 24.

Well, once again it’s been too long since my last post. Had a great time at the Montreal Guitar Show last month. While I was there I participated in the Cherry Seven Project. This project was initiated by Marc Saumier, whereby several builders were asked to build guitars using local woods supplied by Marc. It was an honor to participate and Marc supplied some fine woods, including some amazing red spruce soundboards. Here is some press on the project and some youtube videos demonstrating the guitars. My guitar is featured in the second video.
