    I watched this great video following the complete construction of a high end acoustic guitar by Canadian luthier Michael Greenfield. The degree of accuracy and OCD is amazing and the results are beautiful looking and sounding.



    His guitars start at $10,000 for his cheapest model and $14,500 for the higher end ones.

    Thanks for posting this! I wasn't familiar with Michael Greenfield, but he certainly builds a beautiful guitar. Phenomenal sound. Rich and articulate. He seems to strike the perfect balance of craftsmanship and technology.

    Completely unrelated but, as the weather turns colder,
    I turn to the leanings of Loreena McKennitt.
    And so begin's this acoustic journey.

    I found it interesting that like Taylor his neck is a bolt on with a dovetail joint. Traditionalists would be shocked.

    Yep. And I was also surprised that the strings are top loaded. That's another traditional no-no.
