This is a new model fretless bass!

Parlour size (not ukulele!). Maple top, kwila fingerboard, silky oak back and sides. The three piece neck is silky oak  with an Oregon strip. This might just be the easiest bass in the world to play! Flatwound strings and sounds like an upright bass.

Check out that silky oak grain pattern!

MacCaferRi Manouche Guitar

Here is a special custom order Maccaferri build for Andrew. Highly customised

Andrew's Maccaferri style guitar with maple back and New Guinea rosewood sides. Note the soundport. This is a very different design with a different internal bracing pattern. I built a jig especially for this model and would love to build another guitar like this!

The oval soundhole makes for a tricky handmade rosette.

The finished guitar. Gorgeous!
