Datlen Luthiery

Hand-Crafted and Built in the Napa Valley

April 26th Friday Noontime Webcast with Mighty Fine Guitars

Stevie Coyle from Mighty Fine Guitars invited me to his studio again to chat about the guitars I planned to bring to the Laconner Guitar Festival in May. This is a two-part video, first featuring musician Mark Vickness, and then transitioning to my segment with Stevie at 26:00.

We first look at my Cocobolo Single O, then my Ovangkol OM, and finish with an OM Cutaway I built from “Tree” Mahogany. All three of these builds are available for purchase directly from my workshop.

What’s also really cool is that Mark stayed around for my interview and gave some great insight on the sounds coming from my instruments.


Josh Isaacs: Friend and Talented Photographer

Josh has been shooting photos of my guitars for a couple of years now with exceptional talent, skill, and passion.  It's very clear why he's been named one of the Bay Area's most prominent photographers.

Josh is extremely multi-faceted and does so much more than photos of my builds, and you can see his other work at the following links:

The Golden Era Guitar Features Datlen Luthiery

I recently sent a guitar to Marcus at The Golden Era Guitar in Singapore, who is officially my first international dealer.  Here is a video of Marcus sharing his thoughts and playing a Single O built with Ziricote and Engelmann Spruce.

The crew at Golden Era Guitar has such a high level of expertise and attention to detail, which can be appreciated by anyone who works with Marcus and his team to order a Datlen build.  Thanks for the kind words and great song Marcus!
