Eastern red cedar (Juniperus Virginiana)
is the primary feature of these guitars. It is a light, soft
wood, typically containing plenty of knots, light colored
sapwood streaks, dry rot, bark inclusions, and other
treasures, any or all of which can be proudly displayed.

The early examples here are Tele-style guitars, but a
new double cutaway, two humbucker, set-neck model
is now available, designed in collaboration with Buck
Curran of
Arborea, whose song "Red bird" is the
inspiration for this model.
The song laments the destruction of the natural world
any Redbird will be donated to causes that help reverse
or avert this trend. This also falls in step with my vision
for Dismal Ax, and hopefully I can increase the
percentage of donation in the future.
