The Resonator Guitars are built in the open soundpost and baffle design pioneered by
Tim Sheerhorn. All quality hardware, with choice of Beard, Sheerhorn or Quarterman cones. I have the following
choice of timbers available:
- Tasmanian Blackwood;
- Curly Maple; and
All timbers are finished in a high gloss Nitro-Cellulose lacquer.
Six String Guitars
I build four steel string guitar sizes, which
includes: Parlour - 00 - 000 or OM and Dreadnaught. All can be built with 12 or 14 fret necks with either slotted or solid peg heads. Finger board widths can be
custom fitted to suit the players hand or playing style. Bracing can be built and voiced to suit the style and sound the
player requires. The instruments are set up for action and string gauge as preferred by the customer. This ensures
the guitar is completely comfortable to play as possible. High gloss nitro-cellulose finish.
I have a love for the style and tradition of the F5
type mandolin and always have one in the works. They are built as closely as possible to the 'Loyd Loar Era'
Gibson F5 models, using timbers: Adirondak Red Spruce top; Curly Maple
back, sides and neck; Triple bound in white and black ivoroid binding; inlaid
with 'Flowerpot' or 'Fern' peg head inlays; and, Sunburst stain with a
spirit varnish French polished finish.
Tenor Ukuleles in mahogany top, back and sides,
with an Abalone Rosette to compliment the richness of the mahogany top. Very nice
tone and volume. Spirit varnish finish.
