Awesome Sculptures (& the Artists who make them)
This is a new category for friends of PHLUX who know cool sculptors and whatnot... ya, more later...
Luthiers, instrument makers, etc.
People who build instruments are just as cool (if not cooler) than those who play them. Usually, these cats do both. They are great pickers with a desire to build upon and advance the art of the instrument. That, or its just shear love and dedication to the idea and art of instrument building: making something with your bare hands that will bring years of joy to many many other people, both players, and listeners alike.
- Jenny's Guitar - This is a guitar (and mandolin)luthier I know personally. The martin copy she made from scratch, essentially, is an exceptionally playable and beautiful sounding instrument. It has great tone and timbre, the dynamic range is astounding, and the playability and "touch" is exceptional. Not bad for her first guitar build...
I look forward to the next. Anyone who wants to buy a beautifully handcrafted instrument would be happy with one from Jen, IMHO... added by Cody Phipps
- 3D Modelling - Luthiers Automation (LA) develops 3D DESIGNS for musical instruments. We build 3D models of instruments such as Guitars, Mandolins, and Violins. added by webmaster
