Greetings from the Mississippi River Valley

Post by Kristofer Schantz » Sun Jan 27, 2019 11:23 pm

Greetings everyone, my name is Kris and I have been a fan of this forum for years. It just seems right that I should join the community. I live in Davenport, Iowa which is part of the Quad Cities Metropolitan area of Iowa and Illinois. I have played guitar my whole life. Taking lessons from my father as early as I can remember. My Dad always had a classical guitar in the house, and I have always been in love with it. I also play electric guitar and bass, and write and record music in my home studio. I have sold guitars for a living for more than ten years. I have a Bachelors Degree from the University of Iowa in studio Art, with a minor in art history. When I read the Jose Romanillos book on Torres about five years ago I decided that I wanted to build classical guitars. Since then I have been studying guitar design and making, and have been building up a workshop to make guitars. I have been buying and reading all the books I can find on the subject, buying and watching all dvd’s I can find, scouring the internet for info, and watching YouTube videos. I am finally to the point where I am about to start building my first guitar which will be based on Jose Romanillos’ Torres build from his guitar making book. Wish me luck, and i’ll Report back with pictures.
