A guitar maker that has my jaw on the floor… drool and all.
As a guitar geek, I feel like there are so many amazing guitar makers right now… it’s like we are in the midst of a guitar building renaissance. Preston Thompson, out of Sisters, Oregon is building some absolutely beautiful golden era style instruments.
I’m talking hand-fit dovetail neck joint… hand carved bracing… hand graduated tops… Adirondack tops… The list goes on, and after surfing his site I am officially convinced these are immaculate instruments with a tone akin to the hammer of Thor and the precision of Poseidon’s trident.
So then I find some demos… goodness gracious me, oh my… Jake Workman, Billy Strings, and Molly Tuttle play these fine six strings… truth be told I spent a good two hours on the site and am smitten with these hand-built gems. So as a guitar geek I feel obligated to urge you to do the same.
