John Weissenrieder is an American luthier living in Florence, Italy, who has made a name for himself making exquisite copies of guitars by the old masters including Garcia, Simplicio and Bouchet. John was in town this week with his family, and he stopped by the shop to say hi, so we took the opportunity to do an informal interview. In parts 1 and 2 he talks with JohnPaul Trotter, and in parts 3 and 4 he talks with David Collett.

    Awesome, can’t wait for the rest of the interview with David Collett. Maybe you could post a video of Scott Wolf or Iren Arutyunyan performing on it!

      Glad you guys liked it – we’ll definitely do a recording soon. And if a real Bouchet comes along we’ll try to do a side-by-side just for fun.

      Cheers,

    Thanks for discussing your ideas with this blog. Furthermore, a fantasy regarding the finance institutions intentions any time talking about foreclosure is that the standard bank will not getreceive my installments. There is a degree of time in which the bank requires payments in some places. If you are also deep within the hole, they will commonly demand that you pay the particular payment fully. However, i am not saying that they will have any sort of payments at all. When you and the traditional bank can seem to work something out, a foreclosure process may end. However, if you continue to miss out on payments beneath new approach, the foreclosed process can pick up where it was left off.
