I just updated the Luthier page on Harpguitars.net, adding 14 new builders and over 40 new instruments (sorry I’m this far behind, but I really need volunteers for Harpguitars.net).  If I missed you, please let me know.

One of the new entries is Michael O’Brien, who I introduced briefly last month by way of his Gathering appearance.

After sitting through Michael’s luthier panel presentation at HGG17, I suggested he do a similar photo essay of the design and construction process for Harpguitars.net. Overachiever that he is, he quickly did so – and with his own self-penned “Ripley’s Believe It or Not” musical backstory, he makes an ideal Luthier of the Month. My brief Introduction links to his 17-page PDF article that can be viewed in numerous ways, all high resolution.
