About Todd Guitars

I want people to love the way their instruments sound and feel after I’ve worked on them or built one for them. After all, working for the player is what I do!

About Todd

I have worked for the last twenty years playing music, building wood structures, and managing local stage hand gigs. While apprenticing under a local luthier, and stage production maneger,  It became clear to me that my passion is having my hands on an instrument. So I enrolled and completed my education in the construction and repair of guitars at the renowned Roberto-Venn school of luthiery. Now – with excitement, patience, integrity and experience – I bring this service to West Seattle and the greater Puget Sound area.
