From our workshop in beautiful Port Townsend, Michael brings quality stringed instruments to life.

What makes a luthier? Decades of experience crafting with wood, interest in the physics of acoustics, and years designing and building loudspeakers. And, of course, a love for music and playing guitars – since the age of six, in Michael's case. 

We build lightly braced, highly-resonant stringed instruments aimed at the player. We would like each person who comes to the instrument to choose the piece that they respond to best. For this reason we do not do commission work;  instead as instruments become available, we will post them here on the website and offer them to members of our e-mail list on a first-come, first-right-of-refusal basis (see the Contacts page for how to be added to our e-mail list.)
