Nathaniel and I worked together for years, when I had a shop in the Bay Area. He enriched my craft from the day we began working together, bringing a vast experience with him, informed by having learned wood and metal craft from a young age and from being a highly skilled and competent classical guitar builder. He’s a no-bull type of guy, and honest to his core. He is contemplative before a job, patient, responsible and reliable, and highly skilled. I would not and do not hesitate to recommend my former clients to him when they inquire.
