While this is not guitar-specific, I found this short video profile Brooklyn-based violin maker Sam Zygmuntowicz very interesting. If you’re into the process of instrument building, check it out:

thanks for posting this, Josh. I was really struck by his comments at about the 3:30 mark (if I remember correctly)–the part about each instrument leaving his shop as a “living” instrument. I also love how passionate he evidently is about the people who play his instruments. What makes a great chef? Not so much the finished product, but the guy/gal who truly loves the people who eat his/her food. So the same goes with great instrument makers. This cat definitely qualifies as one of the greats.
I’m glad you enjoyed the video Chad!
