Making Acoustic Steel-string Guitars Did you enjoy this video? Please rate and leave a comment for us! (｡◕‿‿◕｡) Sign up to our newsletter for web series updates and future giveaway contests: http://eepurl.com/bLFBXP Meet Michael Greenfield, a musician who began tuning, repairing, restoring, and making guitars in the 70s and since then has become a seasoned luthier of bespoke guitars. Having experience with vintage and antique guitar repair and restoration, he brings a unique insight to his craft, creating personalized musical instruments and functional works of art for artists, collectors and those who deserve the very best. His workshop is based in Montreal, where we visited over a period of 5 months, filming as he and his apprentice, Julien, transformed slices of spruce, ebony, mahogany, and other tree species into glistening guitars. It was all of our collective vision to present the process in the most candid, down-to-earth fashion, so in this hour-long documentary you will see all the glue, smudges, shavings, dust, and callouses. His guitars feature Florentine cutaways with spalted beech rosettes, violin-style body purflings and simple decorative purflings along edges, Laskin style arm rests and rib rests, amongst other features. This documentary follows several different steel-string guitars from beginning to finish. As Michael puts it, the guitar still thinks it’s a tree until it receives its first set of strings and that is when the instrument is born. After many months of work, the magical moment when we hear a guitar’s first notes is like hearing a child’s first words.

Tour of Michael Greenfield Guitars in Montreal Canada by http://www.guitargal.com/collections/guitars/greenfield http://www.guitargal.com staff
What makes a truly exceptional hand made steel string guitar really 'sing' is how the sound box is worked by a master. Veteran luthier Ervin Somogyi is highlighted in this short film about his work and his new books, "The Responsive Guitar" and "Making The Responsive Guitar", available from Luthiers Press in June of 2009. With more than 40 years experience in Berkeley, California as one of America's finest hand made steel string guitar builders, Somogyi is at his best -- in sound, finish and design. A rare musical glimpse into the workshop of one of America's most respected hand guitar builders, Ervin Somogyi. Original music "If Dreams Could Dance" and "Under the Tuscan Sun" composed and performed on a Somogyi guitar by guitarist Steve Erquiaga, available from 'Cafe Paradiso' (Polygram Records).
