Charles Shifflett Acoustic Guitars

I'm Charles Shifflett and I'm a 'certified' luthier.
You may know that a luthier is someone foolish enough to make their living as a maker and repairer of wooden, stringed, musical instruments.....
This is me in a black and white mood, noodling on an acoustic bass guitar. This one, fretted and with four strings.....I also like five strings and fretless. And have a new prototype but no pix yet.
Here's a pretty thing. But it was built for playing! It has a low action, with a 'fast neck' and it is LOUD, and balanced with bright clear overtones. If you want to see a couple more pix of the inlays on this one, click the 'Steel String Guitars' link below.
