IAn instrument for every need
What's not to like about a parlor guitar? Almost nothing. Easy to look at, easy to hold, can sing over the top without losing your voice.
A classic parlor-style guitar based on the OOO-28VS body size. 12 frets to the neck and a slightly shorter scale length at 24.9, make this a sensitive guitar to play, while the 4″ body depth give it plenty of volume.
For me, the OM body size is the ultimate "do everything" instrument. Versatile, easy to play, comfortable – this is my go to guitar for daily playing.
I build this with a little thinner than normal on the top and bracing, which seems to bring this guitar alive. Great tone and playability.
This is the largest guitar that I currently build and the latest to my suite of available shapes. Tons of volume, but still great clarity between notes. I've been playing this with a pick and finger picking, acoustic or plugged in, and it is quickly becoming my go to instrument.
The octave mandolin was born out of a desire to add some new sounds to the acoustic trio that I play with. Each session brings new realizations, opening an entirely new pallet of sounds and textures.
Do you have an idea for a project? I'd love to see what we can come up with. Multi-scale? Archtop? Electric? Uke?
