Instruments and How To Order


I make two different lines of acoustic instruments. One is the new "turn of the century" Bay State (Bay State logo) models. For information on the Bay State models go here.

The second line of instruments are the custom made, Wells logo instruments. These instrument are handcrafted with only the finest quality wood available and are tailored to the individual order. Why would you want this type of instrument? I would hope it is because my guitars incorporate many unique features. For an explanation of the differences in my guitars versus other fine instruments just click here. To see those models click here.

Please remember that I build a very limited number of these special instruments each year. Feel free to contact me directly at (781) 361-1471 so that we can discuss the details of "your" instrument and meet "your" requirements.

Once we arrive at the specifications of your ideal instrument I will "lock" your position in the queue. Payment, in full, is due prior to shipping or delivery of the completed instrument.
