Here are some of my works which I've enjoyed creating and making used of alternative materials and designs which are inspired by the people and nature around me

Acoustic Guitars : Personally my understanding of the guitar is more than just a good sounding instrument but also equally an expression of the highest form of art and creativity that can be incorporated into it. I like to use the natural beauty of the wood grain for my guitars. There are basically 2 popular models that are offered here.The original JJ and the OM shape. I uses mostly the exotic wood but occasionally  Spruce and Cedar for Top and Rosewood are also included in the lineup. Besides the standard JJ Models there are the Special Limited series like the 'Seismic'  and 'Universe' are based on the JJ shape but the materials used are specially selected . Inspired from the traditional X bracing pattern I've also developed my own take on the tuning of the soundboard and the usage of various materials to enhance the production of a good sounding guitar.

The Seismic Series are created to dedicate and remembrance of those who suffered during various tsunami and earthquakes happened throughout the world. The wood used are exclusively Monkeypod wood because of its natural stunning virtual grain figures and the great tonal quality of the finished instrument .
