I build and repair guitars in Western Canada. For many years I built traditional Acoustic And Electrics one at a time. In the last number of years I am making and playing almost exclusively 3 and 4 string CBG's and homemade guitars. I generally have several guitars for sale.

For those that are interested I thought I would post some of my builds, some of my techniques, and some works in progress. I work in a one man shop, that was originally a 1950's barn, and was in bad disrepair when it became mine.

My shop.

Next post will be guitars.
