One of the absolute highlights of the woodstock show was seeing Dana @bourgeois_guitars again, 11 years after my apprenticeship with him. I have so much to thank this man for when it comes to the way my guitars sound today. #lutherie

As always, I come to a show with the intention to take a ton of pictures, and all of a sudden show is over, with no pictures of interst to human beings taken... Well, it was an absolute honor to attend and I loved every second of it. So good to meet old and new friends! #lutherie

The story of this guitar starts in 1913, when Ivar Kreuger - 'The Match King' ordered 'Loris', a 50ft motor yacht made out of Cuban and Honduran mahogany. Ivar Kreuger was one of the most successful businessmen of his time, holding a 80% worldwide monopoly on safety matches. His business model was simple, giving loans to governments in exchange for matchstick monopoly. By the late 1920's, he was ranked the richest man in the world. In 1913, he placed an order for "Loris", a 50ft motor yacht that he used to travel between Stockholm and his summer recidence in the archipelago outside Stockholm. After his death in 1932, the boat was sold at auction, traded several times, sunk and rescued before she was found as a wreck by its current owner in 1992. He carefully restored her into her former glory, among other things he had to replace parts of the mahogany deck. The old pieces were saved and in 2007 he contacted me to commision two guitars made from the old mahogany. These were my first commisions, and as a 10th anniversary guitar, i have, with his permisson, built this third "Loris"-guitar. I named it The Match King. This guitar was commisioned by Guitar Gallery and im honored to present it as one of their 20th anniversary series guitars. The back and sides of the guitar are made from Honduran mahogany from Loris, the top is mastergrade Italian spruce. Hide glue constuction and oil varnish finish. #lutherie
