STEVE KLEIN: BREAKING THE MOLD
50 Years of Innovation in the Art of Guitar Building
Luthier Steve Klein. An Alchemist. An Inventor. A rebel. A Humorist and a Magic-maker. Steve Klein designs guitars. He designs guitars that have never been built in the manner he proposes and succeeds. He creates superb machines for music and masterworks of art. Each guitar has a name and some sass, like the Davinci, Palettetar, Lumpy, Big Thunder, Floral, Klein Downtown and Blue Planet. Inlays of marquetry, mother of pearl, and turquoise adorn his creations, alongside the roughest of building materials.
This project was a pleasure and heartfelt thanks go out to Steve Klein, Steve Kaufman the Umbrella Arts Community, and to Wilson and Jennifer Schunemann; tireless supporters and fearless entrepreneurs.
