Default Stephen Kinnaird 2021

Congratulations on making it to 2021! We're ready to start the year off right by giving you some videos to watch. The first one is our first dreadnought in the 41 years of Steve's building career, and the second is a classical-inspired all-American woods CS. Hope you enjoy!






Thanks for looking!

Here’s some pictures of the Red Spruce/Black Walnut CS. The whole guitar is from America save the Paua in the rosette that was manufactured by Kevin Ryan in California. Waverly tuners, Jescar fretwire, Claro walnut, Oregon myrtle, Sweet Bay, Basswood, Texas Ebony fretboard and bridge, and Desert Ironwood pins milled by Burton LeGeyt.

Thanks for looking.

Beautiful! Love the maple backstrip in line with the maple in the laminate neck.

Thanks John, but actually that is Curly Oregon Myrtle. It paired nicely with the Black Walnut, with a bit less contrast than Maple.
The Curly maple is the small purfling line that pops up here and there.

Mmmm, tasty new year intro. Beautiful guitars. I especially like the walnut/Myrtle trimmed guitar. Also the carols were just great.

Awesome guitars, you guys--dig the looks and sound of both of them.

Would love to hear Allen Shadd put that dread through the paces! I'm with Tom--you guys should pump out a few more of those puppies!

Carry on with your amazing work, and Happy 2021!

Thanks Tom. Even Billie liked the dread, and she did so against all previous biases. (Not a dread fan...) So yes, we sorta have the green light from upper management.

And thank you, Kevin! Glad you stopped by—and happy 2021 to you and yours.
