These instruments are hand made in my one-man workshop in Melbourne, Australia. There are no 'models' as such, I am happy to repeat or revisit older Harvesters for new customers but I am also always looking for new antidotes and avenues to explore.

I ship guitars all over the world. Recent guitar orders have come in from Norway, Czech Republic, USA & Italy. My workshop in Seddon is also open ( by appt ) to Melbourne musicians for repairs, setups & restorations. 0434 944 104

'Harvester by Mastery' vibratos now available on new custom orders.

Harvester 'Goldthwait' model.

Beautiful, buttery remilled hoop-pine ( from a 1934 north queensland sugar warehouse ) with slender padauk necks.
