Podcast 427: Scott Marquart of Stringjoy

Lots of us daydream about one day building a guitar from scratch. A set of guitar strings? That seems nearly impossible. On this week’s podcast, we talk to Scott Marquart, the founder and owner of Stringjoy. In the span of a decade, he’s gone from launching a custom guitar string company out of his bedroom to running an expansive factory in Nashville building a wide variety of guitar, bass and mandolin strings. It’s a story unlike any we’ve ever told.

We learn about the company’s growth, the machines needed to make strings, why he just entered the mandolin market and so much more.
