Stefan Sobell makes some of the finest guitars in the world in his workshop in Hexham UK. His instruments are famous for their powerful, steely tone and loved by players around the world including Martin Simpson, Mark Knopfler and Darrell Scott.
I last visited Stefan's workshop in 2010 and this meeting was a welcome chance to catch up and put the world to rights. I had a camera and mics set up just in case and this latest Luthier Stories video captured our conversation as well as performances with some new Sobell guitars. Utterly stunning, each and every one.
Why not make a cup of tea and sit back for a quiet 40 minutes and enjoy Stefan sharing his insights gained from a career crafting instruments for some of the world's most talented, and most demanding players.
Thank you to Stefan Sobell, for a wonderful chat, for making the some of the finest guitars on the planet and for being so generous with your time and wisdom.
Until next time
