Luthier on Luthier: Rick Turner

On this month’s Luthier on Luthier Podcast, we talk with acclaimed guitarmaker Rick Turner. Rick has made, designed and worked on instruments for some of the biggest names in music including the Lindsey Buckingham, Jerry Garcia, Phil Lesh, David Crosby, David Lindley and Ry Cooder, just name a few. In addition to his own line of guitars,  Rick also was a founding partner of Highlander pickups, Alembic guitars, Duncan Turner Acoustic research and he holds the patent for the carbon fiber guitar neck. Over the course of our conversation, Rick takes us through some his current and past projects, while giving us insights into his thought process and how he takes design inspiration from outside of the guitar world.
