There are SO many designs! I typically work within a certain range because I have to make a different form for each instrument. As a result I build Mandolins, Mandolas and Octaves on the A, T and F model platforms.  I also do a Celtic mandolin and Bouzouki. Archtop guitars are along the lines of modern jazz guitar as are the jazz Ukuleles. Plus I do Trad. Ukuleles and other ethnic instruments. Bottom line is, I can and do build in a variety of styles. Let me know what you need. (we'll talk). Different configurations, different decorations, and different materials. All will yield a very different and very unique instrument.
