Gallery of Guitars.
These are guitars we have built and finished for various customers or for our own amusement.
Guitar building, while challenging is a relaxing business. Rushing a guitar build will only result in frustration on the part of the builder. You can push it, force it, make it dry faster, but true enjoyment comes from seeing a persons face when they first play their "new baby".
My thanks to those who have helped in my learning over the years and expanding my knowlege of wood, guitars, and many other things to get to where we are today.
A big thanks to my lovely wife Sheryl and her help with these musical instruments, her shop skills and assistance is greatly appreciated.
A great big thanks to a big guy from my past Mr. Williams, you know who you are. Your Master skills in woodworking and your patience to help teach me many tips and tricks over the years, both as your boss, partner and customer, have greatly helped me learned this very unique skill.
A big thanks also to Michael B in St Louis, your teaching style and skills helped me learn more in a few days, then I could have learned with many folks for months on end.
A big thanks to my customers and friends all who have encouraged this strange journey into colors, woods, and electronics. You are the reason I do this, Thank you.............
