I am excited to announce that Urlacher Guitars will be on display at the Woodstock Invitational Luthiers Showcase, October 26th-28th. WILS is an annual acoustic guitar festival which includes stringed instrument builders, players, collectors and aficionados. This event is a gathering for the community, that provides the opportunity to see and hear some of the finest acoustic guitars around. This year is unique because the show will feature women luthiers and performing artists of note, from around the world. I couldn’t be more excited for Woodstock 2018!
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!
