"For Builder and Player"

USAMG Interview with Tim Reede Custom Guitars.

"My goal is to create instruments that are beautiful, have amazing sound quality and are a joy to play. When it comes to guitar construction you could say I am a traditionalist. There is not much difference between how instruments were made years ago and how I make them now. I use hot hide glue because it is acoustically transparent. It dries very hard, allowing vibrations to transfer cleanly. I enjoy the diversity of the guitar family which is why I make a variety of instruments. From historic designs to guitars with modern features, each has its strengths and purpose." Tim Reede
