began modifying and building guitars for fun in 1978 while playing in a
rock band at night and working in the wood shop during the day. My 1st
goal was to make a more versatile electric guitar that included all of
the best features of the most popular models, thus eliminating the need
for more than 1 guitar on stage.
I started building acoustic guitars, and discovered it was
quite a challenge to my abilities, so I attended luthiery school in
1980. I built guitars part time until 1988 and
then it became my full time passion. I started the Guitar Service Center
in Mesa, AZ and have done stringed instrument repair ever since. Over
the years I have become a certified technician for all of the major
instrument manufactures Including: Martin - Gibson - Fender -
Taylor - Guild etc. Then I created Inteso
Guitars and started building them for friends and customers.
