I work to specific commission and make models of my own development. I always try to have one instrument in the workshop which can be tested by customers. Many aspects of the instrument can be specified by the customer, neck shape,choice of wood, fittings, fingerboard with or without Romberg. I will discuss the commission with each client, explain my philosophy and then agree the specifications. The client is kept up to date with progress, usually by email, and visits. When complete the Set up will be tested and adjusted to suit. Each instrument comes with a beautiful full colour hard back Photobook of the stages of construction as a memento!
