American Luthiers

Some American luthier history:
Rembert Wurlitzer, an important member of a family whose influence was profound. Sacconi, D’Attili, Nigogosian, Morel, Francais, Arcieri, Bellini, Cauer, Salchow, and more, were trained and nurtured in that shop; most are now gone. Below are links to some interesting stories of some of America’s most influential shops and the people who made them so.
