Experience the process of building one remarkable acoustic archtop guitar, for one remarkable young musician. Guitar #1711 is a transformative 24-minute experience from raw materials to finished instrument. This cinematic journey documents the 8 month journey to complete this special project as well as the intimate workshop performance.
“Like my work, this film portrays a masterfully complete thought. It was created to stand on its own merit, and be a thrill to your creative senses."
