It was my extreme pleasure to build this Concert Guitar for fingerstyle guitarist and composer, Karlijn Langendijk. Urlacher guitars, built for fingerstyle, seemed like a good fit for Karlijn's sweet melodies and unique playing style.
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!
