Colorado based luthier Michael Anthony recently built me this custom L-00 style guitar. The back and sides are made of Granadillo while the top is Engleman Spruce. I first met Michael in the summer of 2014 when I performed in a concert showcasing his guitars along with Franklin Taggart and John Mieras.
Last week I took part in "Bolder in The Round", a monthly concert/ gathering at Vapor Distillery organized by Boulder musicians Theresa Peterson, Hunter Stone, and Wilson Harwood. For each BITR, this trio invites four local musicians to play. The other musicians on the bill were Theresa Peterson, Emily Shreve, and Eric Elliot.
Here is a write up on the evening by BoulderBeat:
