Painting the guitar has always been about the Music. My connection to Music. I am a painter, musician and physical therapist. I studied jazz guitar in high school and in college, rocked out in bands as lead guitarist and I continue to play guitar and drums in groups today.

I painted my first guitar body in the 80s at age 22. The artist Kandinsky, Robert and Sonia Delaunay, Picasso, Dali, Miro, and others, especially my mother, Dyan Rosenberg who is a painter, home designer/builder and artist working in many mediums, informed my artistic energy and sensibility. I give 100% of my passion and energy into the process of painting and designing each guitar. The end result is for the musician who desires stunning sound in an artistically inspired instrument that complements the originality, sound, look and feel in their music. 

The guitar I offer you is designed, assembled and set-up with electronics and hardware that I select not only to look the part, but to play the part. I paint unfinished guitar Bodies using paint brushes and acrylic paints. Bodies and necks, pickups, parts, etc., are selected from well-known, industry-leaders and also, lesser known, boutique guitar-part builders. The clear-coat finish is done by Master finishers. 

Purchase a guitar, in stock or place a custom order. Choose your vibe and your specs and I will do the rest. You can also purchase a Body from me, solo, and build it yourself. If it's a painted headstock that floats your notes or a painted Body that strings your audience to you, or if you want a guitar that augments the reality of the status quo, then my guitars will sweeten your spot.
