Thanks for dropping by. Come on in and explore my shop and my work. When you’ve looked around, let me know that you were here through the Contact link.

The Cover picture is from the Smithsonian Archives of a luthier shop, likely a banjo maker, somewhere in the Appalachian Mountains in the late 1800’s. I present it as homage and remembrance to the Master Luthiers who have come before me
