What an order...... We were excited about receiving an order to do a reproduction of an 1888 Antonio de Torres (SE114) guitar. It was challenging to build this guitar as close to the original as possible but also very rewarding.  As you may know Antonio de Torres is considered one of the preeminent guitar makers of all time.  The guitar turned out wonderful with excellent tone and playability.reproduction all wood rosette & purflingBritish Columbian Engelmann spruceIndian Rosewood b&s with Brazilian wedgeIrving Sloane tuning machines



Occasionally we get an order for an electric and we had fun building this PRECISION style bass guitar.  Wonderful action, wonderful tone and you judge the looks.  Built from Paradise Black Walnut with a Cocobolo / Maple headstock overlay and gold pearl Montana Logo.  Called the 'Monarch' by it's new owner the Abalone butterflys add a classy touch.  I'd like to keep this one.  Notice the cant of the peghead.Montana BassCanted headstockPrecision style bassParadise Black Walnut


A while back we got an order for a Gibson J-200 style guitar........with the details left to me......that is fun.  I could tell from the original blueprints I needed to do some tweeks to open up this beautifully designed instrument.  A little forward shifting of the X brace, hand carved with just the right curves.  I decided to build two, one with Cedar top, the other with Sitka Spruce top both with Paradise Black Walnut back & sides.  Both were keepers.....very, very open.....sound.  Great playability.

Feeling a need to come up with a design for a guitar between a medium and large size I am so happy with my new 'Paradise Grand Concert' instrument.  All the enhancements I have learned through the years have gone into this guitar......with great! playability and extreme balance these Grand Concerts have super tone to awe any guitar player.  I would heartily recommend one to you.....
