With my concert guitar I am aim to achieve a guitar with an intimate tone but with more than enough volume for any player to express themselves. With this comes exacting attention to detail in aesthetics and craftsmanship.
I use the finest European spruce along with Indian Rosewood or CITES approved Brazilian rosewood/Jacaranda for the back and sides. The neck is either South American mahogany or cedrela and the fingerboard ebony. I finish the guitar by French polish and fit top quality tuners, either Rodgers, Scheller or Alessi, with snakewood or mother of pearl buttons.
‘Chris’s guitars have clarity, warmth, projection, and a myriad of possible sounds. When you play in a guitar duo, it is even more difficult to find two instruments which respond together...but he’s done it. Chris is a true craftsman - one of the best guitar builders in the word.’
