Hey guys,

I thought I might share this little episode of a documentary realized by a Romanian bunch of film making professionals - friends of mine with whom I am working often.

The series is called 'Artisan' and it depicts the stories of Romanian genuine craftsmen from various fields of activity. This month's episode presents the craftsman that takes care of my guitars as well - Florin 'Flo' Giuglea and incredibly gifted and amazing luthier and guitar player.

If you want to know more about what a luthier really does - as i know this is a pretty debated topic here - please take 8 minutes and watch the whole episode:

I'll tell him right away smile.gif Most likely he is working in this already, but he is on his own, out of what I know and also gigging heavily with his band - they play at least two gigs a week out of what I know - they are one of the most popular cover bands in the country for a few years now and he is always busy with shows and building guitars. But he does a hell of a job - I gave him my PRS baritone and it's a totally different guitar in the great way!
