company is a small one-woman shop located just outside of Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Guitars are built one at a time, inspired by traditional guitar-building methods and designs of the early 1900s. Each part of the guitar is shaped, carved, scraped, and sanded by hand. I use hot hide glue, mostly hand tools, and a hand-rubbed french polish finish. 

I value using quality seasoned domestic woods that are both local and have stood the test of time. The finished guitars are lightweight, resonate, rich-sounding, and affordable! I love my work and I love connecting musicians with a guitar that will be a lifelong companion.
