Here are some of my past/recent projects, these don't represent my day to day work however are a good showcase of my abilities.



This Guitar was built as a special Giveway instrument for one lucky winner, it features an Ash body, flame maple neck, hand wound JRS Pickups, vintage radius board with a natural, satin oil finish.


'Shamous' Lap Steel

Martin(Customer) Testomonial: "Joe has created a thing of beauty!  A project started by my dad over 60 years ago; Joe has finally brought to life for me.  It has always been in my mind to get the blank solid oak body my dad came home with all those years ago made into a guitar!  ‘Shamous’ is the name given to my new Lap Steel Guitar: as a fitting tribute to my dad.  Joe’s skill and craftsmanship in completing the project to such a high standard is truly commendable!  This has been borne out by the fantastic comments received from both my brother, family and friends when I have shown them the photos.  I am a singer / alto sax player, so have never really touched a stringed instrument. Now, I have the challenge of making the new ‘Shamous’ ‘sing’ as my dad had wanted to do."



Custom Neck

This neck was built for a pre existing guitar, the customer was looking for a more 'acoustic' feel for his LP stlye instrument, so I built this larger tilt back headstock neck from mahogany, with a rosewood fingerboard and medium jumbo frets.
