This is a brief history of the guitars I have built in the past before the incorporation of CNC technology.



All of these guitars were made by hand.

Nowadays I do things a little different, but the goal of always improving the guitar remains the same.



For instance now I can do fretwork that is much straighter because I use a completely different technique. The frets don't even require the usual leveling that is a must when you bang them in the old way. Also the CNC machine is capable of super fine cuts as can be seen on the logo inlays. This makes for extremely accurate reproduction from guitar to guitar. It also helps keep costs down for the customer by expiating the work more quickly and allows me to offer a pallet of different body styles.



There's still a lot of handwork involved so what you get is a combination of machine accuracy and hand crafted quality that is second to none.

This is the first guitar that I built in high school. I still have it and it is my main practice guitar

I built this one on my own and then modified it with a wood headstock capping, trusrod cover, and pickguard with Gene Matisko. That's how I met him. I was looking for some parts. (tremolo studs) This one sold for $2000.
