Depuis plus de 25 ans, quelques petites centaines de guitares ou basses, je consacre mon énergie à la recherche en lutherie,

à savoir l'innovation technologique, le design, l'ergonomie et bien sur le son, électrique ou acoustique.

Très modestement, et puisque c'est ce qui me passionne le plus,

je saisis toutes les occasions qui me sont apportées par ma clientèle,

mais aussi de ma propre initiative, pour proposer de nouvelles solutions techniques et par conséquent de nouvelles options esthétiques,

en ajoutant ces dernières années, une problématique écologique.

Mon modèle Ouessant est à sa manière une synthèse de ce travail de longue haleine.

Welcome to my website ! I am as much happy to see you here than in my workshop.

Do not hesitate to visit me there too ! 

For 30 years now, I've been building hundreds of guitars, basses, and others strings instruments : violins, double basses, mandolins, ... 

My work is about research : I dedicate my energy finding innovative technology, design, ergonomy and of course, the best electric and acoustic sound.

I'm passionate about catching opportunities that my clients offer to me, but also create my own challenges, to be able to propose new technical and esthetics solutions. For the past years, I've added an essential concern : the environment. How to build environmentally friendly guitars ? Let's find out!

-The Spirit of the Ouessant -

From the head to the easel, through the vents, the principle of neck setting, peg-head, are all components designed to function together. The optimal goal is that the finite instrument appears obvious, almost classical, despite a decidedly contemporary line.

Ouessant cyclade


La Ouessant "Cyclade" was born from the meeting with Soïg Siberil. After trying several Ouessant, it is finally a synthesis between the Spider version and the Sorbus that seemed to suit him best; The roundness of the Sorbus with the dynamics of the spider dam on a spruce table.
