Introduction

Hello Everyone,

My name is Joseph Redman, we live in Abingdon, VA USA, and I build and sell classical and flamenco guitars as a second job (www.josredguitars.com). I build guitars on commission, and also sell some of them on e - b a y. After school I contemplated becoming a concert classical guitarist, but realized soon that it is not a very well-paying job :) About 10 years ago I started fiddling with guitar repairs, then decided to try and build one, and I have just delivered number 25. I am a Torres disciple, with a few of my own variations in some areas, like I think most luthiers do. I build using most of the traditional tonewoods, but specialize in extraordinary/non-traditional combinations (for classical guitars, that is). Most of my soundboard wood comes from British Columbia, but I also have European spruce in stock.

With kind regards,
Joseph J Redman.
