Throughout my career I've had the pleasure of making guitars for people from all over the world. One of the most important things I've learned through this experience is that every customer will have a totally unique set of needs and wishes for their instrument.

A Holst archtop guitar is a true collaboration with the result being a guitar that is as much my craft as it is your vision and inspiration. Please visit the Gallery to see what I've done for others.
