In the late 1970's, Steve began guitar repairs for local shops and individual customers. This eventually led to construction of his first guitar in 1989 and in 1998, Steve became a full-time Luthier. Steve has a workshop in Macandrew Bay on Otago peninsula, Dunedin where he makes instruments to custom order including acoustic guitars, ukuleles, mandolins and bouzoukis - as well as the occasional solid body bass and electric guitar.
