“My goal is to pursue a deep understanding of the physics of the acoustic guitar, whilst striving to master the craft of guitar building. Along the way, I aim to create instruments worthy of the most discerning musicians. I hope that, through a holistic understanding of the guitar and the application of engineering principles in designing and analyzing the instrument, the acoustic guitar can be optimized beyond its current form.”
