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.
