Luthier on Luthier Podcast: Laurent Brondel

Before moving to the United States, Laurent Brondel was a professional musician in France for 20 years. Laurent originally moved to New York and, along the way, he started to work on his own guitars. Laurent eventually found himself in rural Maine and, after working for a time at Bourgeois guitars, he started building guitars under his own name. For our third episode, Laurent and I talk about this journey and hear his perspective on the music industry, the inspiration he takes from vintage Martins, his varnish finishes as well as his new electric guitars.
