Filmmaker Jeff Cogan takes us inside the Paris workshop where Master Guitar Builder Friederich constructs his guitars. We witness the meticulous process necessary to construct one of these instruments from start to finish. Because of Friederich’s unique skills in “ebenisterie” (cabinet-making), his knowledge of acoustics, design, and his playing ability, he stands alone as perhaps one of the greatest guitar builders in history. As Frederich shares his painstaking documentation, technical designs, measurements, and the specifications used in his process, viewers will come to understand the unique genius of this incredible artist.

Run time: 68 minutes Closed Captioned English subtitles

“Jeff Cogan has made a terrific and important film about the greatest living luthier, Daniel Friederich. This is clearly a labor of love.”

                            -David Tanenbaum, classical guitarist
