Nathaniel Hollis Rich, Luthier based in Hilo, Hawaii (HI)
Hand-crafted Guitars Built to Your Playing Style
Meticulous Repairs and Restorations
Repairs and restorations are carried out to preserve the instrument’s originality while optimizing for playability
Over 20 years experience building and repairing instruments
I approach lutherie utilizing my combined experience as a craftsman and a performer. Studying Guitar Performance at San Francisco Conservatory of Music I developed a critical ear.
Working with luthiers such as Ervin Somogyi and Gael Mckeon I honed my skills as a luthier in building and restoration, making instruments meet the demands of modern players.
