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
