I personally consult with all of my customers in order to ascertain what they envision as their perfect sounding
and playing guitar. My personal dedication and careful attention to every detail assures each customer that
their instrument will be the finest available. For years I have been performing live with my prototype guitars.
This fusion of practical experience and fine craftsmanship has resulted in instruments that offer a unique

The Finest Craftsmanship. Classic Tone & Style. The handcrafted Soloflight is a true hollow body built for comfort and speed. Soloflight delivers a combination of airy, classic hollow body tones and rich, earthy solid body drive due to the sculpted hood scoop design and solid one-piece constructed top. It's unique handmade tailpiece design was inspired by the 1937 DeSoto grille. Crafted from aircraft aluminum, it can be accented with a variety of exotic woods. Sweet and soulful? Or a raging rock machine? You Decide...
Pronounced "Kaylee", Ceilidh is Scottish for "Social Gathering and Dance". Whether it's a solo or band gig, Ceilidh is a performing artist's dream. This handcrafted acoustic/electric guitar is based on the beloved 00 Style Martin. Ceilidh primarily uses woods native to the Great Northern Catskills of NY, but is available in a variety of custom options. The ultimate in form meets function, Ceilidh delivers. Notes that truly ring out with natural sustain and a warm, rich and smooth tone, possibly the most comfortable playing experience you will find.
Modern Tones. Surreal Sustain. Vintage Vibe with Drive.
Rocket 88 delivers sweet sustain, clarity, and tone. (Did we mention tone?) It's build quality and design is nothing short of exceptional, delivering pure balance, fullness, articulate highs and a warm foundation in the bottom end. With plenty more under the hood for those who love details to be admired, the distinctive calling cards of iconic American hot rods and classic guitars are present here. Take a Ride in Style...
