Podcast 55: Luthier TJ Thompson
When it comes to repairing vintage Martin guitars, TJ Thompson is, quite simply, one of the best. He's repaired famous instruments played by some of the biggest names in music and has brought seemingly basket case guitars back to life. He also builds his own Martin-style guitars, which command five digit prices.
Thompson is featured in a massive 22 page feature in the Fretboard Journal #26 (penned by Clapton's Guitar author Allen St. John). As a companion to that piece, we invited the luthier to talk on this week's podcast. He tells us about the guitars currently on his workbench, why he loves his Plek machine and one of the future plans Tony Rice has for #58957.
