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 Guitars exists greatly due in part to Matt Urlacher. I feel incredibly fortunate to have shared over twelve years with this fun-loving, supportive guy who encouraged me to follow my passion for building guitars. Aside from raising our son, my fondest memories with Matt were going to various music venues to see our favorite singer-songwriters perform. Music gave Matt comfort and peace while struggling with life circumstances. Music is healing and gives me hope looking into the future. Guitars are beautiful, intricate objects and the music they make is endlessly inspiring. Matt’s love of art and my craft will live on as I string up every new guitar – the first few notes are *always* for you.
