Getting an Instrument From Me

I am now occasionally taking custom orders, depending on the instrument in question and my current workload. At this writing (September, 2017), my primary interest is in banjo-influenced designs using a stretched skin as the "sound-board" and with a back or shell that is cast from recycled materials and painted (see The Tibetan Tiger for one example of this). I am currently not keeping a waiting list beyond one or two instruments, but I'm always interested in people's instrument ideas and dreams, and I remain open to considering a wide range of possibilities. Please contact me (see contact information below) if you have an instrument project that you think I might be the right person for, and we can talk about it.

I always hope and intend to have occasional instruments available for immediate purchase; working primarily on a custom-order basis for many years, I've never been able to maintain an inventory of instruments; they are usually sold before they're finished being built. When I do have instruments available, they will appear on my for sale page so do check there, and feel free to contact me.
