The Models:

At this point in time I am offering (4) distinct models of original design. I also welcome custom orders outside these parameters. 

Acoustic:


MJ6- This mini jumbo six string is very versatile. It responds well to finger style playing and can also handle a pick. The MJ6 is very balanced and mics very well for recording or live stage performance. The mini jumbo is available in 24.9 (short) or 25.4 (long) scale lengths. Recommended tone woods are rosewood / sitka , but other tone wood combinations are available.

MJ12C- The "Dempsey Signature Guitar". Same as MJ12 with extreme soft venetian cutaway.

HD- The HD dreadnaught is the Vail version of the legendary Martin guitar shape. It is my hope this model will convince players who are partial to this shape guitar, to own a truly unique handcrafted instrument. The bracing is not traditional which gives it clarity and power. The herringbone trim gives this Vail guitar a true classic look.
Dimensions:

HD3- Same as HD, but with a(3) piece back

The Newport is a smaller bodied guitar with the distinctive Vail shape. This guitar is symmetrically braced to provide a balanced, but full sound found in larger guitars. The N-OOO has a 24.9 (short) scale and a 12 fret slotted head stock.

The Newport is also available with a more traditional soft Venetian cutaway 

Electric:

The Revelation is a solid bodied electric guitar with a carved dome top. The slightly smaller body size and the 25 (medium) scale length make this guitar very comfortable to play. The Revelation features a LR Baggs T- bridge, which has an acoustic piezo crystal under each string for a acoustic guitar sound. At the fick of a toggle switch you can also choose between all electric or an acoustic / electric blend. The magnetic pick ups are passive EMG.
Dimensions:
lower bout- 13 1/8
