Well, that's me behind the drill press, but that's just part of the operation. My wife, Teresa, my three daughters, friends, and allies all contribute to what we think are some of the finest instruments around.
I started playing 37 years ago on a used Domino, a big white guitar that was full of mischief. It was my nature to want to fix it. From the first day I had it until I sold it, I was sure improvements could be made!
I believe my instruments are part of a heritage that has included all of my guitars. Statocasters, Les Pauls, Martins, Eggles, Foxes, Goodalls, Grimes, and an old Gibson J -160. These guitars have all contributed to my understanding of tone, playability, and quality of workmanship.
Today's efforts are enhanced by a great group of vendors who also contribute to the satisfaction of playing a custom electric. Everyone who is involved is doing this because they love what they do. It makes a difference that you can feel and hear.
Please give us a call and see for yourself what we have created. The instruments are made to stir the soul and rock the night away!
Stay tuned for our new batch of instruments. Photos will follow and we will continue to update the web site.
Thank you for your interest!
