It took a little longer than anticipated, but as you can see my website has undergone a complete overhaul. Don't worry, all your favourite pictures and pages are still here, and I will continue to regularly add new stuff. In fact I've got a few new guitars to tell you about in future posts, so stay tuned. I hope you enjoy the new look!
Only one week to go! I am thrilled to be exhibiting my instruments once again at the Holy Grail Guitar Show in Berlin, Germany. I'll be bringing a couple of my newest headless ergonomic guitars, but I am most proud of my latest creation, a modern nylon-string archtop guitar the I've produced in response to the "Local Woods Challenge". I hope to see you there!

What a wonderful show! I met some amazing luthiers, played some spectacular guitars, and showed my work to hundreds of dedicated guitar enthusiasts from all around the world. Thanks HGGS!
Once again I am hosting the Ottawa Guitar Show! I'll be there displaying my latest headless ergonomic guitars alongside over 40 of the region's best and most creative luthiers. I hope to see you there!

This years' Ottawa Guitar Show turned out to be a huge success! I had a great time getting to meet all kinds of guitar fans, seeing some phenominally beautiful guitars made by superbly talented luthers, and listening in on some great live music. Thank you to everyone who came to see the show, and all those who took part!
The axe is an underappreciated tool. Far from being a blunt instrument for hacking and splitting, in the hands of an expert it is capable of superb precision and speed. And so I present my latest 7-string ergonomic headless guitar, Broadaxe. Clic on the pic for more...
