1. The setting was already intriguing. A Greek from Pontus, living in Athens is a luthier of some of the best Spanish guitars. His name is Vassilis and he is not only an accomplished luthier but also a charming human. We spend 3 days with him in his small and packed lab in Athens, where we learned a lot, laughed a lot and in general had a great time. The end result combined with the music of Edstard left everyone more than satisfied.

  3. From the tiny town of Horsefly, British Columbia, Jason and Pharis Romero create some of the most unique fretted instruments available today. J. Romero Custom Banjos pay homage to early old-time open-back banjos but with thoroughly modern improvements. They are unique, artistic banjos that look as stunning as they sound.

    Film director Matt Miles travelled to Horsefly to interview the Romeros both about their banjos and their music career. He created this film for the Fretboard Journal magazine. The Fretboard Journal is a quarterly print magazine dedicated to the art of fretted instruments and good music-making.

    Created for the Fretboard Journal by:
    Matt miles - Audio recordist, camera one and editor.
    Lindsay Marie Stewart - Still photography and satellite b-roll camera
    Chris Wilson - Camera two and lighting

I'm fascinated by the making of string instruments — violins, cellos, banjos, guitars — and I love videos about their manufacture.
