Handcrafted Classical Guitars & Custom Stringed Instruments

Making & Restoration Workshop

Dedicated to the art of traditional lutherie, I make fine quality classical guitars and custom stringed instruments.  My designs are influenced by historical instruments and are crafted using aged woods, traditional methods & finishing techniques, creating instruments of unique style and authentic quality.

In addition to new instrument making, I have 3 decades of experience in restoration & repair of acoustic bowed & plucked instruments. My workshop is located in the Dandenong Ranges, 35 km East of Melbourne CBD. I welcome all enquiries, and I encourage workshop visits.

Tradition & Craftsmanship

Classical Guitars

I make concert classical guitars in the Spanish style, inspired by the master made instruments of the 20th century.  I use traditional techniques and skills, refined by generations of luthiers to craft guitars which aim to possess the sound, aesthetic and spirit of the old world guitars. 

Custom Stringed Instruments

Additionally, I engage in commissioned projects recreating historical & contemporary instruments to custom order such as lute & theorbo, violins, viols & bows, baroque and 19th century style guitars, mandolins & steel string guitars.

Restoration & Repair

As well as new instrument making, I also restore acoustic guitars, mandolins, lutes, bouzoukis, ouds, violins, viols & bows.  I find restoration work particularly rewarding and I offer my experience, skills & knowledge to the preservation of all stringed instruments from the past.
