"A Recital of Hand-crafted Instruments"...

In an age of digital music and iPods, few truly appreciate the skill, artistry and dedication to the craft of hand-made, musical instruments. A true craftsman, Paul V. lives up near Huntsville, Arkansas. He has many stories and skills that some argue will be lost in the coming generations. Among many crafty results emanating from his workshop, he makes fiddles, guitars and banjos. Hope you enjoy.
Comments welcome.

The back of the guitar is a turtle shell.
