Current Projects:

First Edit since June, 2010!!!

  • After Last august 2013's rensition of the Healdsburg Guitar Festival I decided to retire effective immediately, and I did. In my retirement I plan to build guitars. The difference is that I do not insist that the work pays all of the bills, as it has for most of my career. This allows me to work at a more relaxed pace, and to puruse some of my other interests. I continuse to honor all warranty issues tham may come up in a timely fashion.
  • JB/2 is my standard 1/2" total discrepancy MultiSacale (JB) divided by two, a 1/4" discrepance MultiScale. Ay first blush it may sound too subtle to be worth the trouble, but results bear it out as noticeably superior to convention 1 length fret sacal systems. I am a believer, and have made about a dozen examples at this point.

  • <>Brazilian Rosewood has become a controlled substance! It can no longer be bought or sold legally within the US. I have quite a bit and continue to make guitars with it as it is the best material for the purpose I have encountered. Eventually, it seems I will have quite a few of the worlds greatest guitars to choose from when I feel like playing. Perhaps a solution will present itself before it's "too late".

  • I no longer have a meaningful backlogue of work. If you want a guitar it will still take at least 6 months to make it as the planning stages cannot be overrated in their importance. The work itself goes quite quickly, about 7 weeks elapsed time at this stage. 
  • I will be attending the Woodstock Invitational Guitar Showcase in late October, 2014.

    • I have put considerable time into creating a List of all my instrument work since day one! Unfortunately, I didn't realize I was pursueing my lifes work for the first several years, and there is much I do not recall. Please have a look, and if you know something I haven't recorded, let me know. I have included the customers or current owners names in many cases, and if yours is there against your wishes, let me know and it will go.

  • I have been spending a lot more time write stuff.  I am working on a book sized project and making decent headway. I am also writing some smaller things, and they are liable to show up on my musings page. I just put a story about my relationship with the Multi-Scale concept up. Encourage me if you like! If you don't like it, keep it to yourself as I am fragile about this new endevor. Thanks!
  • I have recently updated my Testimonials page. I resisted this kind of self-promotion for years, but it turns out people feel a lot less at risk treating themselves to my work knowing that they are not tthe only one. You are not alone!
