My Modern Concert model is the result of studying and drawing inspiration from the work of many different luthiers. It is my attempt to reconcile the allure of late nineteenth century Spanish instruments with the higher string tension, body, brilliance and projection of a modern guitar. These guitars have an large dynamic range, variety of timbres, clarity and balance. Options include: sound port, elevated fingerboard and armrest.
