Guitars
 
Here are a few examples of my acoustic guitars from the last 40 years.  I have enjoyed bulding steel string, as well as nylon strung guitars.  
Please keep in mind that my guitaras are each unique; I do not have models. These pictures are meant as inspiration for you to think about what will fulfill your desires.

Classical Guitars and Modern Nylon Strung Acoustics

Modern Classical
Peghead, with locking tuners
 
Tuners autolock as you bring string up to tension; solid peghead avoids both weakness and stringing difficulty; titanium and carbon fiber trussrod allows minute adjustments and light weight
Concert Asymmetric Classical Guitar
 
  Brazilian Rosewood from a bookshelf made in 1957, and a half-cedar, half-bearclaw Sitka top; Multi-scale fretboard
Concert Classical
 
   Monkey Pod and slip matched Cedar; Multi-scale fretboard; wireless stereo microphone and proprietary pickup system
Rosettes
 
One of my favorite parts of designing and building a new guitar is the rosette.  I've always made my own original rosettes, each different, each unique.  Sometimes m goal is elegance; sometimes it is humor.  
 
Details
 
Once I was confident about the voice of my instruments I was able to indulge my basic nature as an artist.  The details of a guitar may not make it sound better; however they do make it more fun to build and more fun when you open the case to play.
