Timeless Instruments - Canadian Luthier David Freeman - Guitar Making School

To the Prairie Oasis of Lutherie. 

Swim long in the knowledge
Washed up four decades or more
Sooth your soul in subtle, succulent, sounds.
Your spirit rises as fingers roam,
strummed strings stimulate
Detailed wooden cavities,
Resolving in perfect cadence
Timeless Instruments sing.                      ~David Freeman~
