Steve Klein Acoustic
Klein takes artistic risks with his instruments that are finally paying off. This beautiful guitar features a rosette that charts the galactic star system.
Cathy Currier, Ralph Novak, Fran Ledoux, Jeff Jewitt, Mario Baldoni
Currier says of the ’89 Symposium: “Symposium ’89 was not just an event for luthiers to meet each other and show off their instruments. It was a gathering of luthiers and repair people to share experiences, knowledge, music, and a love of their trade.” Novak debuts his fanned-fret system. Ledoux and Jewitt correct their phone numbers and Jewett announces his participation in the 1st Annual Guitar Trade Show in Cleveland, Ohio. Balconi informs us that George Manno has had a bad accident and gives us his contact info. With 1 photo.
