Hello, My name is Jay Rosenblatt.
I build guitars in a small shop in West Orange, New Jersey. I also provide repair services.
Typically I create about 5-6 instruments a year, primarily acoustic guitars. Models include parlors, OM, Weissenborn, Kasha and traditional classical guitars, Gypsy and some of my own design.
I build my guitars with handwork and minimal machining. ￼The necks are carved by hand. The body woods are selected for their quality, stability, color and grain. I choose soundboards that are lively and responsive to the touch. My favorite woods are Rosewoods, Maples, Lutz, Sitka and Swiss alpine spruces. I work with redwoods and cedar as well.
In building my instruments I strive for a balance between tonality, playability and feel with visual interest combining original and traditional methods. All instruments are created with the highest regard to craftsmanship and attention to detail.
Thank you, Jay
