Handmade instruments built for the Musician
JR McClellan Guitars

Musical instruments are, at a very fundamental level, precision machines which react accurately to the touch of the musician. I approach each instrument with this perspective in mind. I concern myself not only with the audible facet of the instrument, but also with its feel and responsiveness. A musician should expect that a properly crafted instrument will extend his desire to play and enhance his ability to communicate to the listener. I demand that every instrument I build will accomplish this goal, and I work closely with the musician to be sure that it does.

Although not necessary to pure function, the choice of visually complimentary and satisfying materials make the instrument into a more complete statement of the thoughts and values of the musician who plays it. Making music, in and of itself, is a very revealing and intimate activity. The instrument upon which it is made becomes a part of that revelation - for better or worse. I see building custom musical instruments for musicians as a great, God-given privilege, as I am given the opportunity to be part of that revelation.
