Andre Instruments, featured in a guitar publication !
It is quite an honour to be part of this 2019 guitar publication from Gangemi Editore!
Antonio Marano, associate professor of design at the Department of Architecture, University of Chieti-Pescara ( Italy ) has just made a very accomplished work here.
His portrait of the evolution of the instrument is fantastic, and it features the works of many contemporary peer luthiers from all over the world.
A total of 10 pages are devoted to my work, from the more early instruments like Zyra, to the most recent ones like Sun, Moon, and Vibrations.

In 2014 was my first invitation to exhibit in Europe, this to the Holy Grail guitar show in Berlin.
This was a fantastic experience, it was motivational to see everybody's work there ; I'd say the level of -love- and -inspiration- was very palpable there.
For a young luthier, this is the kind of gathering that feels great to be part of.
