In my life as in my work, I am passionate about well-designed products and high standards of craftsmanship. For this reason, I sometimes go as far as making my own tools to use in building my instruments, when no commercially available tools satisfy me. Of course, I am also a strong believer in supporting talented artisans by buying and using their high-quality files, planes and chisels to design and make my guitars. For me every little detail counts. I approach each stage of the fabrication process with equal care and thoroughness.
Vincent Cléroux, luthier
Started building guitars professionally in 2011 after 3 years of studies at the Bruand Guitar School in Montreal, Canada, where he learned classical and acoustic guitar making and design as well as basic tool-handling techniques. This training was complemented by an applied arts course at the Cégep du Vieux-Montréal. Afterwards, to expand his knowledge and increase his expertise in design techniques, he became an apprentice of Master Luthier Stephen Marchione in Houston, Texas. He instilled in me a love of traditional lutherie techniques and a dedication to impeccable, uncompromising work. He also helped me to refine my dexterity and my woodworking skills.
