Custom Made Instruments With Personality

By  | 

A guitar art show in Tallahassee Saturday featured hand crafted guitars, violins and horns.

Makers of the custom made instruments say it takes hundreds of hours to complete one of these pieces. They also say everything is handmade. They don't use machinery of any kind.

Custom guitar maker Ken Miller says, "A handmade instrument tends to have more personality, so each instrument will be slightly different the same way a person is different, whereas a factory instrument tends to be more the same."

Miller says these custom made instruments can become family heirlooms or considered works of art rather than just musical instruments.
