Special Projects

JOI Guitars

Sometimes I get inspired...

As a creative person, I often go off on a tangent with inspiration. This usually leads to a bit of research and learning, and then collecting the pieces or making the contacts needed to create my vision. These special projects are often collaborations of one kind or another, and serve to motivate, inspire and explore alternatives.
