Every Root Guitar is born of a collaboration between builder, player, and raw materials.
Root Guitar Works was founded out of a passion to create inspirational tools for musicians, and I have developed a distinct style that moves through all of my custom-built guitars. Your ideas are blended seamlessly into the Root aesthetic, producing an instrument that is tailored to your precise needs. It’s about look, play, sound, feel—and resonance—between player and instrument.
The adventure of exploration.
The satisfaction of helping guitarists express themselves.
The simple joy found in discovering a better way to do things.
These are a few of the things that lead me to work with people who love guitars as much as I do. As a luthier, I am honored to be part of your creative journey.
