Hard Candy, the Propeller & Custom Builds

I've had the opportunity and great pleasure of handling many vintage guitars over the years, which has allowed me to discover their secrets to great tone. I've applied these materials and build techniques to create my own model, the Propeller and a class of it´s own boutique electric guitar, the Hard Candy. Hard Candy and the Propeller are crafted to the highest standards of materials and workmanship.

It's all crafted with my head, heart and hands. I don't use a CNC machine. I hand craft every piece of wood that goes on one of my guitars. This level of detail and craftsmanship is not "cheap", but offers incredible value for the money. I use machines like those that were used by the great American guitar manufacturers during their golden ages in the 1950s and 1960's. These special tools are unlike anything available today and were worth the amount of effort it took to locate, acquire and ship them to my shop. Tooling marks and vintage-looking routing give my instruments the character everyone is looking for today. The body's outline is attractive with a flowing and elegant series of curves, which define the upper and lower bouts.The Propeller is slightly larger, while the HardCandy is a little smaller than a Les Paul at 145 inches across at it's widest point. All joints are affixed with hot hide glue to maximize resonance and tonal qualities. My guitars seem to come alive with lush harmonics and dynamics. This can only be achieved with the proper materials and building methods. I also build custom order guitars. We can discuss the guitar of your dreams and then I can turn your desires into a custom crafted guitar of the highest quality. You'll definitely appreciate the result of the love and painstaking care I put into these instruments.
