I grew up playing drums and guitar in a family of sculptors, painters, and musicians. We had a basement full of hand and power tools so I learned how to use them at an early age, so when I designed and made my first guitar in 2006 I was not inhibited in any way, I just went for it.
My initial design was a solid mahogany body with a bolt on strat neck. The end result was not to my liking so I redesigned the whole guitar so that the neck and body would be one piece. I also came up with a design for the head of the guitar, I call it the alligator head (as it resembles that shape). During this period I attended the contemporary furniture show at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City. While walking through the show I came upon a booth displaying bamboo plywood. After standing there with my mouth open and ideas flying through my head, I said to myself this is it! Bamboo is categorized as grass, grows quickly so its farmed for cabinetry and is a big player in the green movement. Bamboo has all the resonance and stability for an exceptional electric guitar and takes all kinds of finishes.My guitars feature high quality parts and is sculpted to fit the body for the professional player. Having a ¾ inch edge grain bamboo one piece top, 1 inch solid wood backs, and ebony fretboards, you can go from jazz to all out shred and anything in between! Being a musician myself and using these guitars in my band, Mordus, I can tell you they have great tone and sustain. Check out my videos .
