Description

“Ian sprayed a silver flake on the neck which is absolutely beautiful. The aluminum guitars he makes have an almost acoustic property to them; the metal gives them a certain subtle iciness; and, in general, his guitars have an amazing attack to them. I can really appreciate the craftsmanship and the artistry that he weaves into his work.”
—Archer Prewitt
