We’re delighted to host luthier Ian Kelly, the owner of Kelly Custom Instruments, as he carves the neck of a guitar. Ian makes custom guitars and handles a wide range of complex instrument repairs and restorations. Come watch this master craftsman carve a Spanish cedar neck for a fan fret braceless guitar body using rasps, a spokeshave, and sandpaper. We featured Ian’s braceless guitar on a recent Instagram and prompted a lot of debate about his design. Opinions welcome!
Whether you are a instrument maker yourself, a musicion, or just curious here is a look inside the magical process for creating a musical instrument.
