Meet the Master Luthier

As a skilled guitar craftsman, Denny is a highly experienced professional who has worked with the best in the business. The experience he has far outmatches what custom guitar services are out there. In fact, he was featured as one of the nation's finest luthiers by the Guitar Player Magazine in 1988.


Denny is the person behind inventing the compound radius fretboard, which provides guitar players with great mobility for string bending. It was in 1978 when this idea came to light and later shared for the entire luthier community to use. Before he invented this fretboard for guitar, nobody used a conical-shaped fingerboard to help in bending notes.
