|Robert Girdis, Luthier|
|Today, Girdis works out of a small workshop in his home in Seattle. Each guitar he builds is unique. They are built one at a time completely by hand. He builds an average of six a year. His waiting list for custom instruments is currently one year, but he ocassionally builds a spec guitar and one of those may be available to a lucky player. He is currently building a series of his popular "Parlor" guitars, nicknamed "The Sound Cannon," by one overjoyed musician.|
