I offer my guitars in four configurations which consist of basic, standard, custom and Art Series.
I have not included prices for all the guitars as many were custom orders.
Basic models have no inlays and a simplified headstock design as found on the Argonaut. Basic models have minimum binding layers and archtop models have a rosewood tailpiece. A floating pick-up is an optional add-on.
Standard models come with split block inlays and multiple binding layers. The headstocks feature the oval shape and pearl inlays. Archtop models feature ebony tailpieces . A floating pick-up is an optional add-on.
Prices will vary depending on options.
Custom and Art models are special one of a kind guitars and are priced according to their features.
