From Tyler: “This is not standard but was necessary on this build. The back was thinner then normal to start, so in order to be able to tune to the frequency that I needed, I chose this bracing pattern to increase stiffness so that I had room to bring it down to my target.”
"Never visit Dream Guitars if you are in a hurry. I was there just once and I had a really hard time to leave because of the overwhelming quality and beauty of every single instrument."
What I appreciate the most is the strong personality and knowledge that Paul Heumiller expresses in his choices, not only choosing the highest makers in the field, and a fantastic selection of vintage instruments, but also giving space to new incredible builders who need to be discovered.
I’ll come back with plenty of time, you should do the same if you like to visit the best collection of independent makers and vintage guitars on the planet.
