Handcrafted one by one from select materials using a combination of old world tools and modern technology, Simmons Custom Guitars are a players instrument. The guitars offer a responsive and sophisticated voice, ease of playability and a modern, unique aesthetic to match. Each instrument is built to precise customer specifications so as to instantly feel comfortable like an old friend and to inspire hours of music, because in the end, that’s what it is all about – music.

I am ecstatic have been invited to participate in the Holy Grail Guitar Show 2015! It is truly an honour to share the company of so many renowned builders and to take part with them in a show that wonderfully features the art of lutherie. See you there!

Music and craft have been my lifelong passions and I am happy to be able to express these passions through guitar building, and to share it with you. I began my journey into the world of lutherie ten years ago in a small repair shop in Canada. Since then, my passion and interest has exploded and has taken me through lutherie school, an apprenticeship with renowned builder, Michael Greenfield, and finally to fulfilling my dreams of building my own instruments. I sincerely hope you enjoy my work and I look forward to sharing my guitars with you!
