Luthier Michael Peters building a new masterpiece!

Taken from Michael Peters website: My goal as a luthier is to craft a powerful guitar with character and beauty of tone. The guitar I build is typically a big sounding concert instrument that has a warm focused tonality with color and balance. They have the feel and response to accommodate different playing styles, technique, and repertoire. The way I accomplish this is by carefully crafting the guitars to very fine tolerances in thicknesses, weights, and how components are fit together. I also believe that the careful design and adjustment of the bracing layout plays a crucial role in optimizing the efficiency of the tops vibration. Essentially I combine my intuition with how I understand a guitar to work.

    • I snapped the headstock of my acoustic recently and to a local lutherian, Steven Terry. Its a labour of love, and I was so impressed with the quality of the work, its prompted me to consider having one made. Steve let me try the first guitar he made, beautifully toned instrument, and nice comfortable feel. Unfortunately the maker will never become as affluent as the player, but its a wonderful craft. http://www.stephenjohnguitars.com/workshop.html
