Urlacher Guitars will be on display at the La Conner Guitar Festival, May 11th-13th! The town of La Conner, is nestled on the bank of the Swinomish Channel at the edge of the idyllic farm lands of the Skagit Valley in the great state of Washington. It has been host to world famous artists, poets, and authors. With such a history steeped in the arts, La Conner is a natural fit to showcase the Art of Lutherie with some of the finest instruments from around the world.
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!
