I will spend a week vacation early April in Firenze in Italy and would like to visit some luthiers.. Any recommandation.
Thanks in advance
Of course visit Andrea Tacchi and his son Giovanni right in Florence!! A must visit!
Rent a car and go meet Gabriele Lodi in Carpi; very nice person and if you like Torres guitars you'll be in heaven.
A friend and colleague of Andrea Tacchi is Enrico Bottelli in Voghera.
If you visit Andrea Tacchi, please tell him Jack Douglas said hello and for that matter the same to Gabriele and Enrico.
Please allow time for a proper visit when you see these luthiers. They're very gracious and want you to see, play and hear the beautiful instruments they make.
When in Florence you must eat a proper bistecca fiorentina!! Andrea will know where you should go.
Have a great visit!
