Blackwater River Guitars
I build guitars in my shop in Wirtz, VA. Self taught - finished my first guitar in October 2009.
I make only a few guitars a year, some being prototypes for ones I build for friends. The prototypes, so far, have all been built from recycled/reclaimed wood. Beyond guitars, I've built a 6 string banjo, mountain dulcimers, small boats, and other stuff.
I play in a band called the Panini Brothers - a bunch of great guys playing original music.
