The Sound: A Documentary on Luthier Frank Harlow

The Fretboard Journal loves it when filmmakers take the time to interview today’s guitar artisans. So we’re happy to share with you The Sound, an all-new, hour-long documentary on resonator guitar maker Frank Harlow. For most guitarists, Harlow’s creations will be a new discovery but his name is well-established in Dobro circles and has been for years.

Filmmaker Dan Simon is a resonator guitarist himself and a fan of Harlow’s exquisite, completely-handmade resonators. The film contains a lengthy interview with Harlow and footage of his guitarmaking process. We hope you enjoy this film, which is currently airing on select PBS stations.
