Luthier and Owner of RAM Guitars

    As far back as I can remember I was fascinated with how things worked. Many times taking apart something mechanical without care of how to put it back together properly. This led to taking apart a violin, making it playable then asking to take lessons and learn how to unlock its magic. I was dedicated to the violin for a few good years but by age 12 I
heard the call of the "cool " musical instrument, the guitar! The teacher I had found only taught on an acoustic guitar so I wouldn't know about an amplified electric guitar for a few years. I learned chords pretty quickly and knew this was the musical instrument for me. At 16 the mechanical and musical knowledge came together and I decided to make a bass guitar. A jazz bass model with a body made of red oak. It was an attempt at being creative ...and I learned that oak was heavy.

    In 1998 I was reminded that I was destined for luthiery and decided to change careers and attend a school of violin making. There I learned many old world methods of selecting and working tone-wood along with the virtue of patience. I studied lines, forms and ideas of the Italian masters and by age 30 I found my "calling".

    Today I make electric guitars built with the knowledge from books, expert players, master makers and classical training from the violin making school.

Top quality electric guitars from wood to workmanship to electronics. 

Classic inspired shapes and original designs with a modern edge, focused on playability and tone.

Made in the USA in the Chicagoland area.
