LaPlante, David Learn More +
David LaPlante built his first guitar in 1966 at the age of sixteen. He has produced guitars for many amateur and professional musicians including Noel Paul Stookey, the â€œPaulâ€ of Peter, Paul and Mary. David has been recognized as a restorer of early C.F. Martin guitars and his work can be seen at the C.F. Martin Museum, the Farmer's Museum in Cooperstown, New York, and in the volume â€œC.F. Martin and his Guitarsâ€ by Philip F. Gura. His contributions to that book are acknowledged as well as in Jim Washburn and Richard Johnston's â€œMartin Guitarsâ€ and in JosÃ© L. Romanillos' revised and augmented edition of "Antonio Torres Guitar Maker - His Life and Work." In recent years David has returned his concentration to the building of the Classical guitar. In 2007 he attended the JosÃ© L' Romanillos course in Siguenza Spain to study with the world renowned guitar maker. David combines a traditional approach and a broad knowledge of guitar history and aesthetics to produce one of a kind signature instruments.
