Luthier and musician Marty Lanham started his career in his native California, but he’s been a fixture on the Nashville bluegrass scene since the early 1970s. He worked in the repair shop at Gruhn Guitars and was one of the co-founders of the now legendary Station Inn before starting his own Nashville Guitar Company, which specializes in hand-made guitars inspired by classic American flattops.

Filmed in the Nashville Guitar Company shop by the Fretboard Journal, this mini-documentary features Marty discussing his background and approach to building guitars, showing beautiful woods, and demonstrating his chops on guitar and banjo.
