We spent the day in Kenny Hill's Ben Lomond workshop. He showcased and performed on each of his domestic hand-crafted guitar models as well as his entire New World Guitars Player and Estudio series instruments built in a small workshop in China.

L.R. Baggs Marketing Director Mike Newsom and L.R. himself hosted us for an entire day in their Nipomo, CA manufacturing facility. I got a first-hand look at how an entire line of American made pickups, mics, and outboard amplification products specifically designed for the nylon string guitar and ukulele are assembled and tested.

Over two dozen videos are slated to be posted on our site over the next couple of months. They include visits to San Diego luthier Robert Vincent's workshop and Cordoba's Oxnard distribution center. Stay tuned!
