Contact Jay today to begin customizing the guitar, uke or fiddle of your dreams.
I love every step of building an instrument, from choosing the wood, to working within the character of that wood to find its unique voice. When I play those first few notes, or better yet, hear someone else play those first few notes and see the smile on his or her face, well now – that’s my favorite part!
