Honolulu, HI


The time was ripe for changes...here in Oshawa, the maple leaves were afire with brilliant reds and yellows, interspersed with bright oranges. The chilled air was a definite reminder of the approaching winter; quite a contrast from the sunny 85 degree weather and refreshing trades that I had left behind on Oahu. So , indeed , I was here in Oshawa with the opportunity to learn from the guidance and experience of Luthier Sergei de Jonge, his construction techniques of Lattice bracings on the Classical Guitar.

The similarities between the " Bossman " Richard Schneider of Kasha/Schneider notoriety and " Guru " Sergei de Jonge are totally blatant. Both..artists foremost and craftsmen alike...tuned to the same note...on a mission to simply make the guitar better..period. A bold yet simple statement and the ingenuity and perserverance to follow this idiom through...day after day; a life's choice.What sets them apart is what they hold in common which is the willingness to share their experiences and techniques to others. The guitars that they create speak for themselves. No doubt , the bar once again has been raised.
