Urlacher Guitars is headed to the SBAIC this fall and I couldn't be more excited! This exhibit features work by over 100 luthiers, music concerts, master classes and trade show. I am most eager to meet contemporary masters who's dedication to the craft and work I've admired for years. You may be able to find me at the booth of Gallery Hardwoods where my friend Larry Davis will have a healthy stash of his amazing tonewoods for purchase. The show dates are September 29th - October 2nd.
I just returned from an intense and inspiring 10 days working with internationally renowned master luthier, Ervin Somogyi. This class focuses on voicing techniques and explores the principles behind why guitars sound the way that they do. It was a thrill to hear a couple Somogyi guitars in person, and to study with one of the greatest luthiers of our time! Ervin’s ability as a teacher matches his expertise in the field of guitar making. I highly recommend this class to any experienced builder who wants to better understand how a guitar top/soundbox works.
Also, a big THANK YOU to fellow luthiers; Bradley Daniels, Ho Zen, and Jerry Brown, for helping to make this class the best it could be. I look forward to following your guitar making careers!
