The finest guitars are made by individual craftsmen, not by factories.

Wilson, I love the guitar.
The craftsmanship is truly evident in the depth and character of tone, I am more aware of my tone property.
It makes me want to play even more than usual, because it sounds so good.
The last time a guitar made me feel like that was when I was playing Alex Kommodore's $10,000 John Gilbert guitar.

Thank you, James, for those kind words!
I hope your new guitar will help you with your musical career.
If you want to see a video of Stephen Valeriano playing this guitar, go to the right hand side of this blog, scroll down to the second photo of a guitar and click on the photo.
My goal as a guitar maker is simple - to make the most responsive, beautifully voiced guitar possible, a guitar that you fall in love with so much you never want to stop playing it.
Current base price for one of my guitars is $4500.
