Hey everyone, not sure if this is of an interest or not but when I am not spending my pastime in the woodshop I also play guitar. I thought I would share a rough track from my home studio of a piece I have been working on the last few months on and off. The title of the actual instrumental is “Mr. Reed” dedicated to the amazing guitar guru Jerry Reed. I added some past projects along with my gilrfriend Jenn’s awesome wildlife photography. I like to call this little 2 m...

Work and family took me away from the smell of brazilian rosewood and sitka spruce. Move ahead to 2008. I’m back in Maine at the old fam...
James Peters enjoys what he does. Waking up every morning and working in his woodshop in the back of his house is the “bees knees” as James says. Once there, he makes custom acoustic guitars.
