I began building and restoring stringed instruments in 1978 and also became a member of the Luthier’s Guild of America. Before that I studied classical guitar with Byron Tomingas at Monterey Peninsula College. Later I became an authorized service center for C. F. Martin guitars. I enjoy helping musicians with their guitars and other instruments to achieve their goals with whatever style music they are interested in. I also build custom order guitars, steel string and classical, mandolins and resonator guitars.
