In general, I like to keep the aesthetic of my guitars simple and let the wood talk. However, I sometimes get asked to add some personalisation.  Such embellishments are priced on an individual basis. Below are some examples of completed instruments and work in progress.
Paua shell “Phoenix”
Phoenix + hearts = life
Sometimes, I also get asked to make ornaments or pendants, using wood offcuts that didn’t make it to the guitar! The pendant also features the engraved album cover artwork for Connor Noble’s debut album! And here’s Connor’s guitar, with that lovely Cocobolo Rosewood back! Sometimes, I get the opportunity to work with artists who don’t play my guitars, but want something extra added to the guitar they play. Below is an additional embellishment I created for Jon Hart on his Cole Clarke guitar, who were kind enough to send a piece of wood from the same guitar!
