Ben’s peculiar way of creating antique masterpieces time after time is incredible.  Ben does not use ordinary materials nor does he use ordinary tools.  Coming soon is some creative information and incite from a deep wise mind.  Bens reproduction projects are amazing remakes of lost sounds, styles, and techniques.

  • Reproductions made from original manuscripts and blue prints.
  • Original wood or wood aged from the same time period.
  • Genius ways of shaping and configuring to get specific specifications.
  • Read below for more projects in the works at the Patron Music Workshop
  • Remakes also available for sale.  (Contact Ben with questions for pricing and availability.)
  • (Pictured above is a remake of an old Torres Concert body nylon 6 string classical guitar.)

Ben started these projects before the marque was repurchased. Therefore, due to copyright issues these finely crafted masterpieces cannot be legally sold. These guitars fool the experts. Their huge sound cuts over the band, giving your chord chunks a strong presence.
