  • Bourgeois Guitar Workshop - Lewiston, ME

    Yesterday we took a little field trip to Bourgeois guitars (http://www.pantheonguitars.com/) down the street here in Lewiston, ME. Located in a nondescript space of an old mill building (the town is filled with them as Lewiston was built by the textile mills), the level of craftsmanship lurking behind their walls is mind blowing. It is difficult to find a machine in their shop, most of the work is done by hand using rudimentary hand-tools. They source the absolute best materials in the world - select pieces of wood costing thousands of dollars apiece. Their guitars start at $3800 each and can cost as much as $30,000. With Rancourt & Co., Quoddy, and Bourgeois all located in the same small town of Lewiston, ME, I would venture to say that Lewiston is one of the great meccas of craftsmanship in the United States.

  • Fifth Prize!

    I found this in an antique shop in Bridgton, ME over the weekend and it made me laugh.

    Not a bad prize for placing fifth.
