The birth of a Luthier.

Hello my name is Dan.


   Well I am a 54 year old man that has always wanted to build acoustic guitars. Since I was about 12 I imagined how it was done and what kind of tools etc. Well here I am at last, I'm finally doing it. I recently came into a little money and I have been buying the tools I need to get started. I joined this site so I can keep a record of my progress.

Leather Guitars

Thought I'd use this forum to spread the word about the new line of leather wrapped archtop guitars I am building here in Claremont NH. I discovered that bonding naturally tanned leather to a laminated archtop guitar produces a rich tone while reducing the stray harmonics that so many guitar players find annoying. For more about my leather and laminated lines of guitars, log on to where you'll find more information about the guitars, and links to hear them being played. I…

A Little Help for Some Friends

What would you do if I sang out of tune ...

                                   - Lennon & McCartney

Well, they don't sing, but still they may need a little help from their friends, fans, and people who still browse for new music and even pay.  Imagine being on the road, the beginning of a month tour, and you're awakened by the hotel manager telling you to move your van quick.  This is what happened this morning to the California Guitar Trio.…

Home Guitar Studio in Progress

I'm always searching around to see what other guitarists' home studios are like. I've been remodeling a house for the past two years and the studio is really coming together.

I'm working on a limited budget so a lot of it is being built myself. All comments and questions are… Continue
