My name is Terence Kennedy, I am a guitar builder, musician, and retired Orthopaedic Surgeon. I have been building steel string flat top guitars since 1998 and arch top guitars since 2010.  I studied with Charles Fox in 2004.  My building philosophy is to construct quality instruments based on traditional designs but with some modern innovations such as double tenon bolt-on necks, carbon bar reinforcement, and in some cases double sides.  I use hot hide glue for the acoustically active joints such as bracing, plate joining, and bridges.   My goal is a great sounding and playing guitar that is still affordable for the working professional musician and serious amateur.  In keeping with this philosophy, appointments are usually tasteful but not overdone, materials are first rate, and I spend a great deal of time on setup and playability.
