Podcast 422: Sully Guitars

We first spoke to electric guitarmaker Jon “Sully” Sullivan on the podcast back in 2018 (episode 204). This week marks Sully’s long-awaited return back onto the podcast. We talk about his ’71 Trella model; how he’s incorporated technology like CNCs into his builds; the economics (and realities) behind creating your own import line of guitars (his Korean-made Conspiracy series is currently taking reservations); why he’s taken a break from teaching guitar-making; and so much more.

Plus: the je ne sais quoi of French words; the genius of Duncan Price (@diskobebe), the NAMM Boutique Guitar Showcase, trademark talk, and more!
