Guitar Making Process

I learned the craft of luthiery by traditional methods using hand tools under the guidance of Paul Hyland, Bill Kelday and Russell Aitken who possess a combined craft experience of over 75 years. I only use seasoned tonewoods from responsible and sustainable sources for the critical components of any instrument build and source the best examples of decorative woods to meet customer requirements. I can design and build to a clients specific needs or desires, in fact I would prefer this to a standard build.

Here is a photographic diary of the build process of Mario ‘The Spalted Silverado’ which concluded with her exhibition at the 2014 Craftex where she won the Instruments Advanced Award.
