I make flat tops in all shapes and sizes. I have more than a dozen different moulds but I favour the smaller body sizes in general. They have better definition without the sometimes overpowering bass of Dreadnought size guitars.
Occasionally I get requests to make a particular instrument but I also like to experiment too. I made this model after hearing some of Oscar Aleman's recordings using a resonator guitar. I took it to the Samois festival where players came from all over the campsite with the enquiry "What the **** is that? I can hear it 100 yards away!"
It has the Selmer body size and shape so it feels familiar. The body is in Imbuia with a laminated front for strength. It has been dubbed "The Selmernator"!
Here are just a few of the unusual instruments I have made for customers.
