Luthier on Luthier: Martin Keith

Martin Keith makes acoustic guitars and electric basses out of his one-man shop in Woodstock, New York. For our 38th episode of the podcast, Martin tells us about his early career as a journalist and professional bass player before taking a job with Joe Veillette, where he made over 1000 guitars before starting his own brand. Martin also discusses guitar design and builders that he draws inspiration from. Lastly, he tells us about running the Beacon Banjo Company, which was founded by his father, Bill Keith, in the 1960s.
