Yeah, I liked the video as well. All the music is played on guitars made Bryant by two of his pro clients Pasquale Grasso and Tim Lerch. I find all the luthiers that I have partnered with on custom commissions to have differing and interesting backgrounds. No two builders journey into lutherie seems quite the same. This of course is reflected in their work!

You're welcome...Here's another from the 2017 Woodstock Invitational Luthiers Showcase (short interview with Bryant by luthier Isaac Jang).

Here is a photo of the quartersawn Italian Alpine Spruce top set now glued together.


Here is a shot of both the Bosnian (Sycamore) Maple back set now glued together and the rough cut Hard (Sugar) Maple neck blank.



Bryant has bent the Bosnian Maple sides and they are now in his 17” body mold with the kerfed top and back linings installed.

It looks like Bryant is making two guitars simultaneously. The Bosnian Maple back and Tyrolean Spruce top plates have been rough cut and thinned to just under 18 mm thick.
