Design Philosophy

My purpose as a luthier is two fold: first, and most importantly, is to make a great sounding instrument. Second, is to make a beautiful instrument that uses all the amazing natural materials that God has provided me.

Being a guitarist myself, I can relate to the needs of other players. I know that not everyone wants the same sound or feel to a guitar. That is why I encourage you to contact me so we can talk about exactly what you are looking for. Every piece of wood offers a different sound and each is unique. I don't build cookie-cutter guitars. My instruments are meant to be tailored to your exact needs.

My personal design style is minimalistic beauty. You don't have to say a lot to say what you mean. I believe in letting each element say exactly what it needs to with out shouting so loudly that it distracts from the overall piece. In other words, I try to keep my designs balanced.

Seen something different and innovative that you haven't seen me do before? I love a new design ideas and am totally open to a new method. Give me a shout and we can design your custom Ensor guitar today.
