It is quite an honour to  be part of this 2019 guitar publication from Gangemi Editore!

Antonio Marano, associate professor of design at the Department of Architecture, University of Chieti-Pescara ( Italy ) has just made a very accomplished work here.


His portrait of the evolution of the instrument is fantastic, and it features the works of many contemporary peer luthiers from all over the world.

Woodstock Invitational

In 2013 was my first invitation to the Woodstock Luthier Showcase. I had the chance to meet great players, and share with some of my peers.





Upper right corner a -spiritual- gift to me : Receiving a high-five, and having my instrument -approved- by one of my luthier heros, in the name of Ken Parker.


Made my day for sure!

In 2014 was my first invitation to exhibit in Europe, this to the Holy Grail guitar show in Berlin.


This was a fantastic experience, it was motivational to see everybody's work there ; I'd say the level of -love- and -inspiration- was very palpable there.

For a young luthier, this is the kind of gathering that feels great to be part of.
