fine handcrafted guitars

MODELS

I offer four guitar models or sizes, the S14 (Grand Concert, 00), the S15 (Orchestra Model, 000), the S16 (Small Jumbo, 0000) and the S16J (Jumbo, J45/AJ). I also offer nylon crossover guitars in my two smallest sizes (N-14 and N-15). All of my guitars emphasize responsiveness, clarity, sustain and tonal balance up and down the fingerboard and across the strings regardless of size. My many unique features play a large role in achieving my signature sound.

Model S14

The Model S14 is the smallest guitar I offer and is similar in size to the Grand Concert. This guitar has a more nuanced tone that is especially suited for fingerpicking. Yet, the low end is surprisingly strong, focused and well balanced with the sweet trebles and midrange.

Model S15

The Model S15 is similar in size to the Martin OM, but with a more organic shape. Tonal balance defines this guitar with pronounced clarity and surprising volume. It is ideally suited for fingerpicking, but with the proper soundboard can easily function as a flatpicking guitar.

Model S16

The Model S16 is my version of the small jumbo and fills the needs of those who want a bigger sound, a more pronounced bass and increased dynamic headroom, along with my signature clarity and sustain. This is an all around guitar equally suited for fingerpicking and flatpicking.

Model S16J

The Model S16J is my largest body guitar and is inspired by the Gibson J45/AJ. This guitar is for those players requiring the huge sound often associated with a dreadnought or traditional jumbo guitar. It is especially suited for flatpicking. As with all of my guitars my aim is to maintain great tonal balance even as the sound gets really big!
