Podcast 297: Michael Bashkin

On this week’s Fretboard Journal Podcast, Jason checks in with luthier and fellow podcaster, Michael Bashkin. It’s an unfiltered and fun chat about the boutique guitar industry at large, the annual output of an independent solo maker, Michael’s Luthier on Luthier Podcast and a lot more. Jason also asks Michael about guitar shows, Moon spruce and the realities of building production guitars overseas. It’s a nearly 90-minute look at the state of the handmade guitar market.

Below: Some examples of Bashkin’s work.
