Interesting luthier video

Post by robinfw » Mon Dec 19, 2016 5:44 am

This caught my attention.
It is in three parts.
I wish I would have had something like this
when I built my first guitar.
It should be of interest to all.

Could you elaborate more about why it is interesting?

It is almost hypnotic to wath a guitar being born.
Thanks for posting.

Isn't it interesting to watch a world class luthier building a guitar in his workshop, observing him working at his bench and completing an instrument step by step? I found this video extremely interesting. Also the atmosphere which Giovanni Tacchi caught with his camera is a positive aspect being worth to be mentioned. Great footage indeed.

Interesting video...thanks. It's much harder to construct an instrument than it looks.

I've watched all three parts. Very interesting. I've never seen it before in detail.
Thanks for posting this video.

Now I know why hand made guitars are so expensive. Maybe luthiers should just make the soundbox(body) and have the head, neck and bridge machine made cheaper elsewhere. Could double the amount made in same amount of time?

The dedication required to create such a thing is admirable. From selecting the wood to painstakingly shaping it into a functional instrument, it is all fascinating. Perhaps when I am older I can try to make just one for myself with the help of a master? The sense of satisfaction must be profound.
