Guitars Birthed in Worship

My relationship with the Lord is the center of my life and I thank Him for every bit of this adventure of building high end custom acoustic guitars. The phrase “Guitars Birthed in Worship” communicates the heartbeat of the entire operation on so many levels.

After many years of working with my hands in fine woodworking, that, and my love for music finally merged together. I didn’t lay out a million dollar business plan. I just waited on the Lord and watched for His lead, and took the opportunities that came up.

My greatest desire is to build instruments that far surpass production line quality instruments and get them into the hands of fanatical players everywhere from young to old, novice to professional at an affordable level…
