The experiments of futuristic luthier Allan Beardsell
Who better to interview one of the world’s most forward-thinking guitar builders than one of his most forward-thinking clients? Guitar great Henry Kaiser asks Winnipeg-based luthier Allan Beardsell about the thinking that goes into his wild acoustic and electric guitar creations. As Beardsell tells it, he’s influenced as much by builders such as Sergei de Jonge and Grit Laskin as he is science fiction authors such as Philip K. Dick and Frank Herbert. If this is what the future holds for guitars, we’ll all be okay. Photos abound of some of Beardsell's finest works to date.
