The Action Figure.  The Studios.

I am Mehmet Dogu - a curious person by nature (in all respects).

Mostly I'm curious about things and how they work and sometimes why they don't. That's the designer side - to find solutions to problems or to make things better.

These days, I work mainly on two things - musical instruments and exhibitions. Both have been a passion of mine for a while as they are the height of research and making. What I make are tools for understanding, tools for expression.

This site is mainly about the musical instruments.  Guitars (mainly) have been a passion of mine since I was a kid.  I've played for a long time and at almost the first step, I tinkered and modified just about every instrument I ever owned.

About six years ago, the mods turned into ground-up builds and things just kept going.

What you see here is just a small part of the instruments I've made or modified - please check my other feeds for more details such as construction photos, my shop, tools I'm building to make these instruments and more.

I also have a dedicated two pages on this site to other works I do - art and non-instrument designs (architecture, exhibition design, product design, etc.).

I hope you like what you see.  It's been a fun ride and it would be great to have you along. Drop me a line with questions or comments - looking forward to hearing from you.
