GUITARS BY JASON KOSTAL
The MDW - Quilted Birdseye Maple
This beautiful instrument bearing my initials (making it a monogram model rather than a signature) was designed and made for me by luthier Jason Kostal in Phoenix AZ. It is intended as a nuanced and powerful smaller body instrument for the fingerstyle player who wants the voice of a Modified Dreadnought in a smaller, 12-fret design. The original guitar was made of Quilted Birdseye Maple but since then Jason has built many more examples of this model including a 14-fret for Paul Richards (California Guitar Trio) and even a nylon string for Willy Porter!
This collaboration led a to a truly bespoke guitar with every aspect of it being made to my specifications. It is a wonderful instrument and it inspires me more every single day.
