Book: An Instrument Maker's Guide to Insanity and Redemption

Regular price


With An Instrument Maker's Guide to Insanity and Redemption, guitarmaking legends Michael Gurian and Dick Boak compile an unforgettable (and often hilarious) collection of behind-the-scenes stories from fellow builders and repairpeople. 

The softcover book features over 120 pages of tales from the likes of Steve McCreary (Collings), Grit Laskin, Kathy Wingert, George Gruhn, John Monteleone, Andy Powers (Taylor), and others. Some are hilarious, some are heartbreaking... but all speak to the unique passion and drive of the people behind our favorite fretted instruments.

Not just for luthiers, but for any fans of the modern guitar movement.
