In this very candid and informative video conversation, Roger Sadowsky talks about his start in the business, his guitar designs, and providing guitars for Keith Richards, Lee Ritenour, and many others. Watch the 2-part video conversation.
Bob Bakert, Editor: Roger Sadowsky has been the luthier to the elite studio musician scene in New York for as long as I can remember. He has the demeanor of a cardiologist in that he takes on serious issues with a grace that puts you at ease, figures out how to solve your problem in a practical, professional albeit professorial manner. He is a treasure and in the top tier of American guitar innovators. The man countless musicians rely on and have relied on for decades to keep their careers humming along with a minimum of stress and a maximum of performance. I truly enjoyed our conversation, it could have gone on for hours… Please enjoy this two-part series with Roger Sadowsky of Sadowsky guitars.
