The finest in handmade instruments

I build a limited number of mandolin family instruments. My goal is always to build the finest custom instrument to meet each player's discriminating needs. I enjoy providing an instrument that a musician can own and play with as much pride as I took when I built it.

Tailored to meet your needs for look, playability & tone

All instruments are warranted for life to the original owner against defects in materials and workmanship.

Woods and construction

All instruments are carefully crafted with the finest materials available. The building process begins with the selection and harvest of Engelmann spruce in the forests surrounding McCall, Idaho, and continues with uncompromised craftsmanship and attention to detail. These custom instruments sound and feel as good as they look, and great care is given in every step, from design, to matching of woods, to finish and set-up.
