Derek Asuan-O’Brien has been building and repairing stringed instruments for over a decade.

Following an apprenticeship with Jason Burns of Blast Cult, building Double Basses, Cellos, and Archtop Electric Guitars, he built guitars for Michael Spalt of Spalt Instruments, and Matthew Needham of Needham Guitars.

The current production is a series of Semi-Hollow Electrics, with references to Vintage Japanese Aesthetics and 1950’s trestle bracing.
