The Master Gallery
Since childhood in Gillett,Wisconsin, my parents have always been an inspiration. I will never forget watching my father build a fast-moving riding lawnmower from salvaged auto parts and other things he had around. If a pair of pants was past the point of wearing, my mother would put them away for patching other clothes. My mentors taught me to satisfy the project’s needs with whatever scrap material was available in the workshop rather than pursuing an idea that required sourcing something that you don’t already have. This ‘waste not, want not’ principle was instilled in me at a young age.
It was my grandfather, Ruby, who most willingly encouraged spending the extra time necessary to make something look beautiful as long as it was functional. His loving attitude prompted the Rubÿtone brand name for my guitars.
The better they sound the more you want to play them!
The Layout of a functional object determines the usability. Guitar on-the-go is the theme.
