Barry Cleveland: Great Luthiers at the 2011 Montreal Guitar Show Pt. 2

July 05, 2011

Here are videos of four more master luthiers who are doing very cool things, shot at the 2011 Montreal Guitar Show (click on the text):

Gordon Branch on his 33 1/3 guitar with what he calls an "Industrial Deco" look, constructed from aluminum tubing, with a neck built of ultra-rare pink ivory wood from South Africa.

Chihoe Hahn, known for his high-test Teles, briefly describes his new Strat-style guitar.

Grant Batson shows two auditorium model guitars without sound holes—a fairly radical concept.

Saul Koll shows his RE and Superior models, along with two Super Glides

And in this video Andalusian luthier Luis Feu de Mesquita talks about the historical origins of the guitar, specifically the Stradivarius Baroque guitar, which he has reconstructed with a few practical modifications.

Stay tuned for lots more good stuff from the show, coming soon.
