About Me My family came to Nevada City, CA in 1857; I come from a long line of craftsmen. I have devoted many years to developing my unique line of stringed instruments after having studied traditional lutherie in Nice, France, with Pierre Gagginni, and violin bow making with J.A. Bolander in San Jose, CA. I put great care in providing the best sounding instrument possible--one that will give enjoyment for many years.
Purchasing Information When you are ready to order, please contact me and I will setup a time to call you and discuss your requests. Besides an upfront payment in full, I will accept an initial deposit of one third the final cost with regular installments thereafter until the instrument is completed. If for any reason you need to cancel your order, I will refund any money deposited upon reselling the instrument to another party.
