Really terrific talk, I watched all the way through. Very interesting info on Orville Gibson and the post-Loar era. Just super informative, to say nothing of the amusing anecdotes!

Thanks for posting this! I really enjoyed the interview Michael Bashkin did with Parker on the Luthier on Luthier podcast. Can't wait to watch.
