Tony DiDomenico

Portrait of Tony DiDomenico

I'm Tony DiDomenico. I've been in the woodworking business since the late 70s. Wow, I'm not sure I like the way that sounds. I started an architectural woodworking company in 1988 which is still in operation today. In the early 80s I decided to try my hand at guitar building since I never had a good instrument and I knew my way around woodworking. Well, what an eye opening experience that was, "I'm going to need to do that again!" Having no experience in this craft, lets just say my first attempt was in need of improvement.

And so it began…first steel string guitars, then classicals. Next came jazz guitars and now some hybrid electrics.

I continue to build all varieties, around two dozen or so yearly. Having a good size facility allows me to utilize my machinery and production experience as well as my wood finishing skills on my instruments. I have always believed in sharing life and work experiences, and I extend this to my fellow ASIA members.

Now, after all these years in the woodworking business, I'm always humbled by the experience of others and eager to learn from them.
