I'm Stephen Marchione and I welcome you to my web page. I'd like to share with you my current work, as well as various stringed instruments that I've built since becoming a full time luthier in 1990. My art is displayed in both photo and video format, and I am honored to also feature the beautiful music of my friends and clients. After all, it's about the music, and my promise to you is to consistently build guitars and violins that are seductive, transparent, and perpetually enticing.

My passion for instruments is broad, which is why I offer such a wide variety of guitars and violins. I craft Classical, Flamenco, and Archtop guitars in 15", 16", 17" and 18" sizes. I build Carved Top, Neck Through the Body and Vintage Tremolo electric guitars. I also make violins on the Stradivari and Guarnieri patterns.
