Each step of building is exciting. It’s really unlimited as to what you can create. I’ve gotten to use some exotic woods that are amazing.
I’m a slow builder. Each guitar is about a six month process. I love building around a theme, incorporating that into the guitar. That can be duplicating one that I love, with some unique custom touches, or building one to a customer’s desires, hobbies or their business.
A guitar presents so many opportunities. It could be the wood that’s used, the custom finish, the choice of hardware and electronics. It’s fun to experiment with custom inlay in pearl, abalone, metal, almost anything. The possibilities are endless.
I love the moment when it’s finally strung up. It comes alive as a musical instrument.
