The Workshop

Handcrafted basses and guitars

Cuttings, gluing, machining, varnishing, assembly…

Each step is carried out with the greatest attention, in order to guarantee the delivery of an exceptional instrument. Here, there is no digital machining, which allows great flexibility for “Tailor-made”.

The best material

For hardware, electronics and pickups, I chose to trust the best, such as Aguilar, John East, Glockenklang and Hipshot (others see options). All the woods are rigorously selected to best meet the sound, mechanical and aesthetic requirements of the client.

Carefully chosen woods
and worked by hand

Historical and local species

You will find the “historic” species of electric violin making, but also and above all “local” species, such as Sycamore, Cormier, Alder, Alisier, Poplar burl… I attach great importance to the the use of local essences which have nothing to envy to the American or exotic ones which it would be time to do without.
