Beautiful Art You Can Play With

In Craftsman Art on April 11, 2009 at 12:41 am

“Artist” isn’t descriptive enough. “Craftsman-genius” really comes closer to the mark. William “Grit” Laskin makes exquisite custom inlays on his gorgeous handmade guitars.
Laskin worked with Gene Larivee during the early 1970’s. He opened his own shop and quickly made a name for himself with his one-of-a-kind work. He also plays many different instruments and is a songwriter.

“Anybody who has seen his work or read his book knows he is one of the most talented inlay artists of our time. The aesthetics, style and precision of his craft are just off the charts…very high-level work with real style.”

—Paul Reed Smith, PRS Guitars

He completes a dozen guitars a year, all custom order, and maintains a waiting list. Wish I could add my name to it.

A Statement

This is not a mirage. It is a real piano. For enough change, you could have one too.

From Baldwin’s site:

Purple Passion

This contemporary purple marble finish combined with black plate, purple felt and nickel hardware makes a bold statement.

Why, yes. It certainly does make a statement.
