Capital District Bass Hang

I will be the featured luthier at the Capital District Bass Hang #2.

More information on the Facebook event page

This is a wonderful opportunity to see, hear, play my basses, and to meet some wonderful bass players. Bass educator and amazing bass player Michael Dimin has put this whole thing together. I will be speaking about the history and the evolution of my AE5 Swallow signature bass. I was at the first Hang where Michael Tobias was the featured luthier, and it was very special. Don’t miss it!

Woodstock Invitational Luthiers Showcase

Hi everyone. Welcome to my brand new much-improved web site.

There are lots of new photos, models, video clips. I hope you like it. Drop me a line and tell me what you think.

This past weekend (October 22-23), I had the pleasure of displaying and participating in the festivities at the Woodstock Invitational Luthiers Showcase at the Bearsville Theater in Woodstock, NY. Many of the world’s finest luthiers from far and wide displayed their incredible guitars, and their meticulous craftsmanship was ever present—Steve Grimes from Mauii, Michael Gurian from Seattle, WA, Linda Manzer from Canada, Ervin Somogyi from Oakland, CA, John Montleone from Long Island, NY, and several of us locals…the list goes on. I loved seeing their work, meeting old friends, and getting to know some that I never actually met before such as Steve Grimes and Tom Ribbecke—both great guys and impeccable craftsmen.

It was a wonderful hang!
