Craig has worked as a professional luthier for over 25 years. After building his first guitar at a workshop with Canadian luthier David Freeman he was apprenticed to renowned steel string luthier Nick Kukich at Franklin guitars in Portland, Oregon. Here he became a part of the vibrant Pacific Northwest stringed instrument community. In 2002 he relocated to the beautiful Columbia River Gorge, and opened shop in White Salmon, WA. After many years of repair and restoration he is now focused solely on new work, with particular attention toward classical and historically influenced acoustic guitars.
