The recipe for a gourmet meal calls for the finest ingredients. The design for a VanDruff guitar calls for the finest materials.

Because I only build a few instruments each year, I can take the time to search out the best and most beautiful materials. Although I have trusted sources for hardware and electronics, I regularly travel to dealers and luthier conventions so I can pick the best tonewood and inlay materials. This attention to detail means that your guitar will be sonically and visually beautiful and it will last a lifetime.
