Instruments Recently Built or Restored

Own one of these fine instruments

I usually build just a few instruments a year. When I complete them I offer them for sale to interested musicians and collectors. If you see something you like I can build one for you to the same specifications. You can specify the tonewoods and finish. All that is required is a $200 refundable deposit. When the instrument is complete, you can decide if you want to proceed with completing the purchase. If the completed instrument does not meet your expectation or your purchase situation has changed, your deposit will be fully refunded. Contact Me if you are interested.

The custom mandolin you built for me is everything I was hoping it would be. Thanks for much for taking on the project for me!
Joey - Austin

I love the mandolin. It looks amazing and has a great sound. It's monopolized all of my free time since I received it. Seeing the instrument in progress throughout the process was exciting as well. Thanks so much!

I got the mandolin today - it is stunning, more beautiful than the pictures, with a clear bright sound that I love. Your stain is perfect- deep reddish-brown that really shows off the flame maple- well done!
Dave - Vancouver

Terry, it's everything I hoped it would be, and possibly more. I've only had a few days with it, and one rehearsal, and I love it more each time I pick it up. Keep up the beautiful work, and do yourself a favor, RAISE your prices! Thank you again.

It's a nice tight little oval hole. A good mando at a very reasonable price... Very sweet sound.
