Jeff has immersed himself in the music instrument business for over 30 years. Folding together both an art and science background, not only does he build fine acoustic guitars, he has formulated colorants used by the guitar industry and is sought after as both a finish consultant and teacher. 

Working out of a historic building in Cleveland, Ohio, his goal is to produce well-crafted instruments full of tonal richness and character. As a guitar player himself for 40 years, he knows how to put together an instrument for the discerning and discriminating player.

“For me lutherie is a craft of endless boundaries. There are so many new inspirations I get from nature, science, and other craftsmen and disciplines, it’s a never-ending pursuit of excellence.”
