If you're interested in ordering one of the guitars I have available, contact me at my email or by phone, leave a message and I'll get back to you asap. 

If you are interested in having me build an idea you have please feel free to contact me and we can discuss your idea and come up with some details.

Dream and believe, all things are possible if you work for them.
These are some of the woods I like to work with and typically build guitars with. However if you have some great desire I can probably help you with it, give me a call.
I usually use the highest grades of wood I can find. However, sometimes I use lower grades to get a look I'm after. Generally higher grades have tighter grain patterns and lower grades have wider and wilder grain patterns

Back and Sides:
- Indian Rosewood (full range and even tone)
- Maple (a little on the brighter side)
- Myrtle (similar to maple, a little fuller though)
- Mahogany (warmest and most even tone)
- Walnut (full and a bit bright)
- Koa (bright but mellows a little over time)
- Cocobolo (nice and full, leans towards maple)

- Sitka Spruce (most popular for even tone and volume)
- Cedar (a little on the warm side and articulate)
- Redwood (similar to cedar but tighter response)
- Ebony 
- Indian Rosewood
- Wenge
- Cocobolo

Necks: I'll do solid necks or layered (laminated w/different woods for visual effect).
- Mahogany (most popular, weight is good and so is the tone)
- Maple (nice tone and weight)
- Rosewood (on the heavy side, great warm tone)

- Rosewood
- Ebony
- Wenge
- Cocobolo

- Any of the woods above work well, I like rosewood.
Rossettes  and headplates are done in lots of varieties of woods. I usually use some combination of the other woods in the guitar and abalone. I like using Koa and Mango for accent woods, Koa is very expensive for actual bodies and tops but very beautiful.
Inlays are lots of fun and as you can see I like using abalone and mother of pearl. I get most of my inlay material from Depaule supply (check out their website:
My logos can be done in mother of pearl and abalone.
Finishes are usually Nitrocellulose Lacquer but I also do oil finishes,
which a lot of people prefer.
