Page 34 - The Hawaiian Twin-Hole Guitar by January Williams Both photos courtesy of January Williams Sources and Notes https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guitar_and_Lute_Workshop Note: There was a previous version of this page which I feel was more informative. However, the present version does contain the essential story. http://www.kamakahawaii.com/about/fun-facts.html “George Gilmore, classical guitar teacher at Punahou School, and Sam Kamaka Jr. started the Lute Society and taught evening sessions in guitar and lute construction from 1966 to 1970. Gilmore learned lutherie in Spain and influenced some of the techniques still used today at the [Kamaka ukulele] factory.” Meet the Maker: Steve Grimes, AL#74, p 20, also Big Red Book of American Lutherie Volume Seven, p. 48. Steve Grimes mentions that Mel Bay published a slack-key book by Keola Beamer (Learn to Play Hawaiian Slack-Key Guitar) which features a Grimes guitar on the cover.

He writes: “José Romanillos was my great maestro and teacher. We met at the first guitar making course in Zürich Switzerland in 1984. Four more courses followed and at the last one I was his assistant. Here are some photos of the course in Zürich. They were taken by Mr. Bruno Schlatter (copyright).” Photo courtesy of Tobias Braun.
