On this week’s Fretboard Journal Podcast, we talk to luthier Nate Wood, out of Springfield, Oregon. At last month’s La Conner Guitar Festival, Nate regaled us with guitarmaking tales so we quickly hatched a plan to bring him on the show. Before launching his own guitar and guitar repair business (Stahman Guitars), Nate went to school at Roberto-Venn and then honed his chops working for archtop maker Ryan Thorell. Today, he’s specializes in his own inventive guitars using primarily reclaimed woods and eco-friendly materials.
