This Santa Monica, California–based "luthier to the stars" is famous for his custom-built electric and acoustic guitars and other instruments. He has reportedly built an electric bouzouki for Donal Lunny and a 4-string white Mandocaster-style instrument for Larry Sledge. This electric mandola was built in 1978 for Nashville songwriter/musician Bill Kenner. It features a maple body with carved top, 2 lipstick tube pickups, a 15-3/4" scale, three genuine diamonds in headstock, and a sunburst finish.
