Last Q&A until December | Engineers vs Artists | Truss Rods | Are Classical Builders Traditionalists

In this episode of DIY Guitarmaking, I answer your questions on the juxtaposition of the engineer and the artist within the luthier, ebony truss rods in classical guitars, are classical guitar builders traditionalists and more.

I won’t be producing any more videos during the Fall because I will be fully occupied with teaching the Hands-On Guitar Build Workshops. But no worry! Videos will resume in December.
