Although the guitars I build may display many fine cosmetic details, my primary concerns with the construction of the instruments are their sound, playability and long term stability. To achieve these goals, great attention is given to the guitar design, the wood selection and a no compromise approach to their construction. One of the first questions I get is, “But how much do they cost?”My guitars can be very affordable, especially if you do not want a lot of cosmetic detail. Custom rosette and purfling designs, although these are things I love making, take a lot of time and will drive up the cost as will exotic wood selection.Neither of these is needed to make a great sounding guitar that is comfortable to play. The base prices for my guitars are in the $2,200-$2,500 range with a highly detailed Brazilian rosewood model topping out around $6,500.
