Steel Strings

 

 

All my guitars are handmade with high quality materials.

All the guitars are dated, signed and numbered.

 

I use top quality European spruce and red cedar. A wide variety of tonewoods are available for the back and sides, the most known and used are rosewoods, maple, mahogany, ziricote, walnut but others can be used as well, please enquire.

 

I now also offer guitars made without using any tropical hardwoods or just in some parts, like fretboard, please enquire.

 

All my steel strings can be finished with oil but other options are available such as lacquer or Hybrid finish (shellac top, back & sides and neck lacquer).

 

In some occasions I may have guitars available for sale, non commission guitars that i just finished so please contact to ask about it.
