And So It Begins

April 4, 2011

I recently blogged about how guitar making was not just a craft but also included some almost ‘mystical arts’. I forgot to mention that it also involved some flipping hard work!

I’m delighted to say that Luthier Dave White, having assembled and assessed all the pieces of wood and other materials for the guitar which he is building for me, has made a start. In three months’ time (or thereabouts) Sybil Iúr will be ready but, whilst the build goes on, Dave has promised to document the building process on his website.

From bits of wood to a hand-crafted musical instrument … watch the process as it unfolds here

and just look at the beauty of the Venetian cutaway already 🙂
