March 8, 2019 // Savannah, Georgia, USA
After the 2019 Southeastern Lumber Manufacturers Association (SLMA) Spring Meeting in Savannah, team JoeScan invited some of our sawmill friends to get a closer look at the history and process of building archtop guitars.
We all learned a lot about the intersection of guitar technology and the development of jazz music. It was amazing to see the transformation of blocks of wood into intricate, hand-carved musical instruments.
We followed up the tour of Benedetto Guitars with dinner and drinks, and a live performance by Benedetto marketing manager Jackson Evans and his wife Maggie.
