Steve Gilchrist's interest in instrument making began as a teenager in the 1970s when he met violin maker Johnny Johnson - who lent him advice, books and tools. In 1979 he went to work at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville in the repair department - which proved to be a life changing experience. Steve is now best known for his mandolins which he makes in small batches in his workshop at Lake Gnotuk, Australia.
