About Ostinato Guitars:

I have been building guitars since 2013, experimenting as I go. I don’t follow a lot of traditional build techniques.

As a consequence I’ve made a lot of kindling. I have a woodstove in the shop though, so that works out OK.

In future digest posts I’ll talk about some of the unusual construction techniques I employ and why I do things the way I do.

This is an avocation, more than a business. I give the instruments away as gifts. I do this because I enjoy it, and for no other reason. I suppose I may sell some guitars sometime, but that is not now my primary focus. My focus is making better and better instruments as an art form, a kind of functional sculpture.

Othe things take place in my messy, messy¬† workshop. There’s a series of videos on Youtube where I share the process of converting a Volvo V70 to full electric.
