Podcast 373: Creston Lea (Creston Guitars)

On this week’s Fretboard Journal Podcast, we check in with Creston Lea of Creston Guitars.

We talk about his current guitar production, buying trends, how he utilizes a CNC on his builds, his website documenting every guitar he’s built, and so much more. Creston also recounts his memories of attending the first two Fretboard Summits.

We’ll be throwing a 2022 Fretboard Summit at Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk Music (Aug 25-27, 2022), where Creston will be competing in our first-ever Nickel Wound Chef competition against builders Duncan Price and Meredith Coloma. As on the Iron Chef show, only one build will reign supreme.
