Design and Build.

Contact me to discuss your ideas for a custom built guitar. I can build most types of instruments and enjoy collaborating with creative thinkers to design and make bespoke products. Have a look at the De Vekey and Billy Bo ukes for example!

Mandolin.

I love mandolins and have been working hard to try and develop a model which I can call my own. I have produced a few prototypes and this is the latest. Wider fingerboard, Padauk back and sides, arch top, tapered bridge and no soundhole in the front. I will post a sound clip and video so you can see/hear what it sounds like.

Here's a video of the mandolin being played in the amazing new band Seren.

Banjo Ukulele.

A tenor banjo ukulele with "forget me not" flower inlay. I love the stylings of A.C Fairbanks, S.S. Stewart etc and have tried to capture some of that feel. This is something I hope to incorporate into my other instruments.
Update January 2013 - getting close to completion. Hoop and skin fitted, neck fitted and fixed, just need to make the tailpiece and it'll be time to start applying the finish. I like the old time Finally finished with tinted nitro cellulose lacquer to complement the vintage feel. Loud and punchy with a sweet tone when you move closer to the fingerboard equally at home being plucked or strummed.
