Judy Threet earned her PhD in philosophy at Stanford in 1986. In 1987, while teaching at the University of Calgary, she joined a local folk/swing band where she met a gifted and generous luthier, Michael Heiden. In no time, she placed an order for a guitar. Though still teaching, she spent many hours at Michael's shop and, by 1989, asked him to teach her the principles of inlay -- "as a diversion", she claimed. (...) By 1990, Heiden had overseen the building of Judy's first guitar. By 1991 she had switched careers and opened her own shop. In her current location, a warehouse loft in one of Calgary's oldest buildings, Judy works alone, completing fewer than twelve instruments a year. Threet guitars can now be found across North America and in Japan.
I've gotten to know Judy over the years and she's a wonderful person and extremely talented Luthier. She builds a guitar with class and a clear, beautiful voice.
