I would like to thank all of you who have so freely given of your artistic abilities and time.
Thanks a bunch!



January 2017.
Cory Walker just sent me this recording.
Cory Walker on D-RW No73, Jake Stargel on D-M No74, Jarrod Walker on Mandolin No3 (I think).
Pretty fun to hear 3 of my instruments in the hands of these extraordinary musicians.
Big Red.

New
June 2015.
So I've finished up this big batch of guitars
and made some quick recordings.

Starting with No.83, OM-12-RW. That's a Red Spruce, Indian Rosewood 12 string with a slightly deeper body.
Strumming Chords.

This is a Multi-Scale (Fan Fret) 000.
Also Red Spruce with African Blackwood and (gasp!) a sound Port.
The sound port is an interesting thing, to me it makes the guitar have a more
surround sound feel rather than just feeling like some of the sound is aimed at my head.
Noting and Nothings.

Red Spruce, Mahogany, 12 fret Dreadnought.
It's a Big guitar with a Big sound.
Chording and Picking.

Red Spruce, Brazilian Rosewood.
!!
Strumming Not Humming.

These little Nick Lucases sound so big.
With red spruce and quilted maple they look amazing too.
All the Doo Dah Day.

A nice OM with Engelman spruce and Cuban mahogany.
Strums on Strings.

These short scale J guitars sound huge, red spruce, mahogany.
Chording and Picking.

Fun on the couch or at the jam a 00 13 fret with Indian rosewood
is super comfy to play and has plenty of cutting power if you need it.
Just Hit Play.

Another quilted maple with red spruce combo but this time an OM size.
Take 17.




Two new dreadnoughts here for your listening enjoyment.
Nos. 75 and 76, both mahogany D.
Same two tunes on both guitars, 1st is 75 then 76.
Can you guess which guitar is which on the second tune?
My apologies to Norman Blake and Tony McManus.

Humours Of Barrack Street.

Humours Of Barrack Street.

Coming Down From Rising Fawn.

Look out for Jake Stargel playing with Sierra Hull & Highway 111.
They have some hot and tasty picking and singing.
You'll also find him sitting in with folks like Ricky Scaggs.
But anyway, here is Jake with a good ol flatpicking number,
Road To Columbus with No.71 D-RW.




Oh Boy!
Look out for Jake Stargel.
Here's the latest thing he sent me, he's playing No.71, and there are a few other great pickers on there too.
Do you know who they all are?
Ramblin Rollin' Stone.



One thing I love about this work is that my customers turn into good friends.
So here is a good friend and customer Kellar with three tunes on three different guitars.
No.24 andOokpik Waltz
No.34 andFishers Hornpipe
No.46 andBeaumont Rag
I'll try to get the pictures on here soon.




Here is some new stuff by Kory Willis
on guitar No.59, GA-RW, which stands for
Grand Auditorium, by the way.
Martin also calls this size 0000 or M.
And now the tune called Goodbye Baby Lion









Alright, here are another couple of tunes by Kory Willis.
His guitar is OM-M No.43.
The first track is Christmas Eve Waltz









Here we have Mike Horan who gave me some of his time
on a cold January morning to do some
fancy fingerings and fretwork.
We set up the Rode NT2 and CAD mics into a tube preamp
into the minidisc recorder for your listening pleasure.
This guitar is No.17, a mahogany D.
It is Mike's Midday Rambler guitar on his own tune
Goodbye Stetson Hat.


This is also Mike's No.17.
Drop D tuning, and if you don't know the tune
then shame on ya.
Play The Tune





Thanks to Seth Hayden for these next two tracks.
He has one of my CLGs, red spruce, mahogany, no binding.
His group is The Washover Fans.
The album is That Habit Suits You.
Light Sweet Crude is this first song.





This next song is called Home







This is John Messina with Hormigo D No.52.
He recorded with an AT 2021 with just a little bit of compression.
Hormigo is an incredible sounding wood.
I would describe it as
half mahogany, half Brazilian rosewood.
The volume on John's recordings seem to be higher than the others so be careful.
Lonesome Road Blues.


Here's John and No.52 on
Saint Annes Reel


One more from John Messina and No.52.
Here isWildwood Flower









Next up: More from Mike Horan.
This is the latest OM-mahogany, No.55.
I should know thename of this tune...



Mike on OM No.55 again.
This is a pretty little tune called
There And Back Again



This is Mike Horan on D-M No.53.
Capo 2.
This guitar is for sale at Mass. Street Music,
by the way.
Slippery Slope








Mike Horan again but this time with
No.51, a 13 fret Nick Lucas with maple back and sides.
Play It


And again Mike with the NL-Maple No.51 Play It







I made this quick recording a couple years ago
with my homemade stereo mic to minidisc.
The guitar is No.6, a 14 fret 000.
Play!







For this next set of recordings
I set up a Rode NT2 about a foot and a half away
and a CAD95 about 5" from the end of the fingerboard.
Into a tube preamp then to mini disc then to computer.
Its just me playing though, so please forgive the mistakes.
Practicing hasn't been on the agenda for years.

This guitar was made especially for
the Thomastik classic steel flatwound strings.
Kind of a fun different feel and sound.
It is a 000-12 fret cutaway, Sitka top, Indian rosewood
back and sides, No.54.
Play










Let's see, what should we do next?
How about No.38 that just happened to be in
for a little neck adjustment?
It is an OM, mahogany with a beautiful
Engelman spruce top.
Play







Next up: Nick Lucas, No.51.
Red spruce, quilted maple, 13 fret neck.
Play





Same guitar with bare fingers. Play Me







Here is No.55, a very powerful OM.
Red spruce, mahogany.
Play





Here is No.55, again,
this time with bare fingers.
Play
