If you wish to order a personal instrument from me, please get in touch and I'll assist you in this process.  
At this time, the turnaround build time for an order to be completed is of 16 months.

My body of work also includes personal/spontaneous builds, which regularly emerge amongst the custom orders. This side-by-side approach
shown effective in keeping the work very dynamic, as a synergic interaction takes place between the different projects I am working on :

Apparently distant influences, different visions of a perfect aesthetic or ideal tone, are perceived as a -set- of inspirational data, and are thought-of for a given time.
This allows me to correlate the old ideas with new ones, and to bring the different types of guitars and instruments together in a common place.
Thus, I like to give place to the decompartmentalization of genres, and to the shared amazement that brings a fresh and open look on the practice of lutherie.

In general, I build only one or two instruments at a time, while having a minimum of five projects ahead.

I do often have new pieces that become available, without I have been mandated to make them. I invite you to consult the - in the
works - list below, and to keep in touch with me for a personalized update. Here is
one example of this principle.
