Auriole — Features and Details

My favorite part of making guitars is the problem-solving and design. After years of playing and repairing many, many conventionally-built guitars and basses, I've come to recognize certain common problems that keep reappearing, and some areas where classic designs may fall short for the modern player.

This "end-user" approach has resulted in some unique features that I feel set my instruments apart, and give them functional and/or structural advantages.

Most importantly, all of these design elements have real impact on the tone and performance of the instrument.
