"I love the look of the top extending up the neck with a flush fingerboard. It is a really nice example of the transition between the 5 course Baroque guitar and the six single string modern guitar. It features an elongated body and a fingerboard…"

Profile Information

About me:
I have been building all kinds of guitars since 1972, and have always loved antique instruments, from lutes, vihuelas, vielles, rebecs to early romantic guitars. I have done lots of restoration work on original old guitars and am currently making several Panormo models. Also lots of modern instruments and art pieces, always one of a kind.
