Hello, My name is Jay Rosenblatt.
I build guitars in a small shop in West Orange, New Jersey.
Typically I create about 6-8 instruments a year, primarily acoustic guitars. Currently I have several models in my lineup from parlor guitars and baroque reproductions, OM sized guitars in a variety of woods, Weissenborn’s, Arch top jazz guitars, Kasha classicals, Kasha braced steel strings, and other experimental designs.
I build instruments by hand with a minimal of power tools. No parts on the body are CNC’d. Necks are carved by hand. I mass produce nothing. The body woods I use are selected for their quality, stability, age, color or grain. I pick soundboards that are lively and responsive well before anything is cut.
In designing and building my instruments I strive for a balance between sound, tonality, playability, feel and visual interest always combining originality with proven methods in design. All instruments are created with the highest regard to craftsmanship and attention to detail.
Thank you, Jay
