I build archtop mandolins and guitars here in the high desert of Bend, Oregon. I am honored to be in this occupation, and I believe that my enthusiasm is evident in every instrument I build. My instruments are widely known for great sound, excellent playability, and the highest attention to detail. I also pride myself on my customer service. Many of my orders are from repeat customers, which I believe is an indicator of the quality of their experience working with me.
My work has been featured in Mandolin Magazine, Mel Bay's Mandolin Sessions, Middlebury Magazine, JazzMando.com, Minnesota Bluegrass Magazine, Fretboard Journal's Bench Press column, 1859 Magazine, and the Bend Bulletin Newspaper. I've written articles for American Lutherie and Make Magazine.
Please contact me with inquiries about custom orders and the length of my waiting list. These shops also sometimes have my instruments for sale: Carter Vintage, Greg Boyd's House of Fine Instruments, Carmel Music, MandoMutt.Com, and The Acoustic Music Company (in the UK).
