Gilbert's career was informed by his self-taught education, construction innovations (such as individual string saddles of adjustable heights, and revolutionary tuners), and a voicing technique that emphasized clarity and projection.His son, William, joined John in the construction of classical guitars in 1991. John passed away in 2012.
