The Art of making Art
An individual working luthier doesn’t work like a guitar factory and also doesn’t work like an artist who makes one of a kind sculptures. It is a bit in the middle of these two worlds.
Custom guitars are both considered as a tool to make music and as a piece of art to look at.
In a world of computer controlled production machines custom guitars are still “hand made , and hand played” Not because luthiers like to do romantic but because it is the most efficient way to do it.
