In April, Craft in America filmed at the Custom Shop at C.F. Martin & Company in Nazareth, PA. We watched luthiers in the Custom Shop hand chisel necks to fit bodies, assemble bodies with hide glue, hammering frets into the necks, inserting perfling around the sound hole, and stringers play testing the guitars.
The Martin Guitar Company will be featured in the MUSIC episode of Craft in America, premiering November 20, 2015. (*check local listings)
