Model 2

One of the smallest steel strings I make, apart from the Tiple and the Terz.  Great for recording and the couch.

Model 3

One of my most popular models.  A great all- rounder.

Model 4

A 12 fret neck mid-sized guitar.  Extremely comfortable to play and a full-sized sound.  This model 4 is one of bluesman Eric Bibb’s most treasured instruments.

Model HD

A mid-sized guitar with 14 fret neck and slightly wider waist proportions. Designed and braced to give the rhythm sound of a much larger guitar with mid-sized comfort. Great bass response in recording.

Model D

The most common steel string shape in the world – called “dreadnaught” after the large warship or “jumbo” by others.  Many bracing and wood choices for different voices.

Model 11

This little 14 fret model is after a venerated Japanese guitar from the early 1970s.  A really versatile all-rounder in a comfortable size.

Model 5

A “mini-jumbo”.  Great for blues and fingerstyle.

Stage 100

Built on a 16″ archtop pattern, this model suits many styles from rock rhythms to celtic fingerstyle.  A large body which is more comfortable to play seated.

Stage 200

Built on a 17″ archtop pattern, this is a true jumbo, with all of the richness of the 1930s and later guitars which became so popular in rock and country music.

Model 6 / Baritones

My largest body which will fit in a standard case.  I use this one for baritones, bajo setxtos – anything which requires a great bass response.

Tiples and Tenors

This body was modeled on a Bolivian Tiple used by Chilean band Illapu, which they kindly let me measure.  Good for frequencies down to 130Hz-C3, so I use it for Tiples, Tenor guitars and guitar-shaped Bouzoukis.


Last and probably least, this small guitar was a common size in the 1800s, as a size 5 Martin guitar.  It’s appropriate to call this size a parlor guitar.   Tuned a third higher than standard tuning, hence the name.
