What should people know about you and your work?
 
I am OCD by nature leaving me in the constant pursuit of perfection. I always make sure that is reflected in all my work. I feel that I have the of advantage being an experienced guitar repairman having seen so many custom and commercial instruments through the shop to analyze. I study the design elements that have worked (or failed) for decades for many builders and try to improve on them where I can. An example would be the recent addition of installing lightweight graphite reinforcement rods in all the necks I make. This small improvement stabilizes the neck creating lifelong reliable instrument with a fraction of the issues typically seen in commercial string instruments.
