I've always wanted to get one of John's Guitars. He is closing in on a beautiful OM with Brazilian Rosewood, Brazilian Rosewood Bindings, Bear Claw Sitka Top with a Macaw inlaw on the headstock by Larry Robinson. Click here for pictures. I met Chris at the Memphis Acoustic Guitar Festival; was very impressed by the quality and sound of his guitars. His instruments are carried by some of the highest quality custom guitar stores in the country. This guitar is his ES model (cross between OM and dreadnought; very bright, lively sound). The back and sides are Black and White Laotion Ebony with Ebony Binding and European Spruce Top. The inlay on the headstock and down the fretboard will be Craig Lavin's Red Coral Reef Theme - horizontal oriented. Click here for pictures.
Kinnaird Guitars - I've sold more of John & Steve's guitars than any other of my luthiers, so I always have builds going on with them.
John is building two OOO with cutaway Brazilian Rosewood and Two Black and White Ebony - all custom models, sold.
Steve is building an FS with a beautiful set of Macassar Ebony and an OM with black and white Ebony. Click here for pictures. This is one of Jay's newest creations it's his baritone 'Django' Uke. It's a long neck archtop ukuele with a beautiful Myrtle back, Snakewood bindings and very highly customized work by Jay and by Craig Lavin. THIS ONE IS SO EXCITING! It's a baritone uke, which means if you play guitar, you can play this. If you play an archtop, you will really love this as it is an ARCHTOP UKE! Click here for pictures.
In addition to these, there are many custom guitars that are being built for customers that never get on this site...actually the majority of our sales.
If you are interested in any of these builds that are either near completed or in the process where you can add your own customizations, please contact me.
