Mark Blanchard has been designing and building his own guitars for nearly 30 years, crafting an array of inspired acoustic flattops, nylon strings, and archtops.

Drawing from a wealth of knowledge gained through his decades of collaborating with musicians, he selects from his carefully accrued stock of tonewoods, uses basic woodworking machinery and hand tools, and carefully crafts each guitar from the ground up. He's also a resource to other luthiers on the Chladni method.
