Thank you for your interest in Shadowfax Guitars

All Shadowfax Guitars are hand crafted in my shop using the finest materials and time tested building techniques. Like Shadowfax, the horse that Gandalf rode in JRR Tolkien’s “Lord of The Rings” Trilogy, my guitars are designed and built with performance in mind.

I build each Shadowfax guitar one at a time in my shop here in Houston, Texas. I keep my shop humidity and temperature controlled to an RH of 45-50% and temperature of 70-75 °F. I have a wide variety of both traditional hand tools and modern power tools.

I am a member of the following:

  • The Guild of American Luthiers (GAL)
  • The Association of Stringed Instrument Artisans (ASIA)
  • And other local luthier organizations
