I have a great passion for the L5 Archtop guitar and the OM size guitar, and these are what I mostly build.  I do offer Dreadnaughts and OOO style as well.

Having repaired hundreds of guitars, mandolins and (unfortunately) banjos, over the years, I see many things that work and many that don't.  Drawing from those experiences, I try to build a guitar that reflects a modern aesthetic sensibility yet retains the sound qualities of the great pre-war guitars. 

Light weight, balance between the strings, and a broad dynamic range are all things I try to incorporate into my guitars.
