Whittemore Archtops

Whittemore archtops – the “Kalamazoo” models – are known for the big fat throaty sound that is the hallmark of electric jazz guitar.  Designed for amplified performance, yet with a strong acoustic presence for the wonderful amplified archtop texture. 

Whittemore Classicals

Hand-crafted using wonderfully seasoned 40-year old woods, Whittemore classical are concert-level nylon string guitars that will satisfy the most discerning musician. 

Whittemore T-models

I grew up in DC following Roy Buchannan and Danny Gatton around like they were gods.  With their inspiration I have been hand-crafting Tele-style electrics since 1985 using the finest woods and hardware, the old fashioned way.  I am a true one man custom shop, and you will not find a better T. 

Whittemore semi-hollow electrics

I build two semi-hollow electric models, both voiced for jazz and blues, as well as a ES-330-inspired thin-line archtop.  These are Incredibly versatile gigging guitars for the discerning musician.


Steel String Acoustics

The Whittemore “Nazareth” is a modern take on the revered Martin OM.  Loud with great midrange presence.  Contact me to change your acoustic future!
