Guitar and banjo museum
As vintage instruments come into his workshop for repair, Frank Ford photographs them for his museum. He explains his motivations like this:
Every day at Gryphon, we are privileged to see and work on some of the worlds finest fretted instruments. I hope to take the opportunity to photograph and show you some of the things I find personally interesting. I’ll keep the descriptions to a minimum and concentrate mostly on presenting some good photographs.
I don’t plan to spend a lot of time putting together a display of the world’s most expensive guitars, because that’s already been done to death in book after book. More, I’d rather show and discuss instruments that have a combination of interesting features, design, history and materials. Among them there will be some valuable collectors items, no doubt.
