About Jay Rosenblatt

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 finger style acoustics, Weissenborn’s, Archtops, Kasha classicals, Kasha braced steel strings,  Gypsy Jazz guitars and other experimental designs.

I build instruments by hand with a minimal of power tools.   Necks are carved by hand.  The body woods I use are selected for their quality, stability,  color or grain. I pick soundboards that are lively and responsive to the touch.

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

and remember…

  1. great blog jay! I met you at the Woodstock luthiers extravaganza
    love what you are doing great rosettes!.
    I started making my first guitar a triple O 12 fret and am blogging about it, not sure what i will do after I make the first one but I am already designing my second. If you get a moment go to my blog.

    I was a photographer for over 20 years and got bored and moved onto jewelry and from there many other things

    Maybe I will see in you in Woodstock next year! Hopefully you will have your own booth.

  2. Hey Dr. J
    Nice meeting and playing with you at the Kitchen this past Sunday. When you said you build guitars, you build guitars. Love your site. I have a Yamaha 12-strihg acoustic that needs some minor work done on it. Could you suggest anyone?

    Keep in touch,

    Craig Mitchell
