"INTERVIEW CONFINEMENT" - The Guitar Channel.
Monday May 11, 6:00 pm (France) / 12:00 pm (Canada)
I've known Pierre Journel's Guitar Channel years ago. We were pleased to do an interview in July 2015, in Montreal... a long time ago
He never had the opportunity to go to my workshop in person ... and we will fix that on May 11, at 6:00 pm (France) / 12:00 pm (Canada) , in a Facebook Live.
We will talk about guitar, lutherie, manufacturing, and woods. I strongly advise you to watch it!
We are looking forward to see you there, and to answer to your future questions!
#FJFest: Benjamin Paldacci Guitars
I am honored & flattered to have a tribune in the fabulous magazine The Fretboard Journal, as part of their #FJFest project.
You can admire beautiful pictures but also a visit of the workshop in a video, I shot for the occasion. You will also find this media, in the PHILOSOPHY tab of this website!
"Benjamin Paldacci takes us on a quick tour of his Québec City workshop for FJFest. Ben builds exquisitely crafted flattop acoustic guitars featuring bold details and sleek lines. He incorporates thematic elements into his appointments — headstocks, rosettes, inlays — drawing inspiration from a multitude of cultural sources.
He builds five different models of flattop: a 12-fret 00, an “Auditorium” model, a dreadnought-sized guitar that maintains the rounded look of his other models — neither a square-shouldered nor slope-shouldered instrument — as well as a nylon string and what he’s taken to calling a “Small OM.” Ben was also kind enough to point us at a great introduction to his Small OM made by the good folks at Eddie’s Guitars in St. Louis, MO."
