The Birth of a Handmade Classical Guitar


Here is a video that I created showing the birth of a few of my handmade classical guitars and some of the major processes they go through. 


I have taken many pictures of guitars while building; perhaps thousands of shots by now. I wanted to use some of these pictures to represent what a guitar goes through in my work shop during the building process. The birth of a guitar is a process unlike anything else. During the video slide show you will hear some music from Beethoven (Allegretto [Excerpt] from Symphony No. 7 in a Major, Op. 92), which adds a nice tempo and intensity to the video. Enjoy!
