The back is also given careful acoustic evaluation so that it will work to enhance soundboard and add character to the tone. Once the body is assembled, the top and back are carefully and selectively thinned until the entire box produces the desired acoustic response.

Playability is crucial to a quality guitar. My necks are made from well seasoned woods and reinforced with carbon fiber bars to add stiffness and durability. In addition every neck is equipped with a stainless steel, dual acting, truss rod of my own design and manufacture. These unique truss rods assure smooth adjustability and long serviceability. Hand shaping allows me to customize the neck geometry to suit the player.
