Currently on the workbench is a Brazilian Rosewood parlor guitar with elegant Black & White Striped Ebony accents. As much as I enjoy working with a client to design their dream guitar, it is also incredibly satisfying to rummage through the wood stash to select woods with a specific aesthetic vision and tone quality in mind. I can't wait to string up this guitar!
Urlacher Parlor and Concert Guitars were on display during the 2017 Santa Barbara Acoustic Instrument Celebration. SBAIC features handmade stringed instruments exhibited by their creators. This three day event is a great opportunity to meet luthiers in person and play some of the finest guitars made. Pictured here is guitarist Mark Lemaire performing on two of my guitars. Thank you Mark! Check out the Santa Barbara Acoustic Instrument Celebration.
