Custom Handcrafted Acoustic Instruments
Why do I build mandolins?
I have been in love with the mandolin for a long time. I have owned several different ones thru the years, never dreaming that one day I would make the leap into building my own line of custom instruments that would bear my name.
I build all of my instruments by hand, in my one-man shop. Starting with some of the finest quality tonewoods available, each piece is painstakingly cut, glued, carved, filed and sanded until it emerges in the end as a finely crafted instrument.
I put a lot of myself into of my mandolins and it is hard to let go of them. Why do I build mandolins? I guess the real questions is 'why didn't I start sooner?'
