Douglass Scott has been playing the classical guitar since age 7, and has a Bachelor of Music degree. He started making guitars were made in the late 1990s following Sloane's and Cumpiano's books for instruction. In 2002, he attended a guitar building and repair school called Timeless Instruments where he built my 4th guitar and received a more formal orientation to lutherie. Soon after, I got a job at a well respected and established stringed instrument repair shop called Old Town Strings, in Victoria BC, where he was living at the time. The owner, Dave Cahill, is an outstanding repair person and in his shop Scott learned specialized guitar making and repair skills. He also studied French polishing and hand tool techniques with the renowned master luthier and teacher of lutherie, Geza Burghart. He also learned to refine my control over the guitar's tone through several years of working closely with Mikhail Robert.
