Each of his guitars are entirely hand made and unique, thoughtfully created to maximize the beauty and tonal character of the wood. Brian only uses the finest, hand selected materials and has a world class collection of aged and heirloom tone woods at his shop. A strategic use of modern technology has allowed Brian to Ensure exact, precision craftsmanship on every guitar, as well as to create some forward thinking designs such as highly detailed sound ports in an interchangeable pick up system. Every one of Brian’s guitars is produced with strict attention to detail and a passion for the craft. Craftsmanship is particularly noticeable in the details from the comfort of the neck profile to perfectly executed bracing or painstakingly detailed inlay. These high standards are evident in every guitar that leaves Brian shop. Precision craftsmanship is of the upmost importance in his guitars and the desired sound, visual aesthetic, and set up is unique to each guitar.
