William Laskin has been making guitars since 1971 and worked for a while with Jean Larrivée in the 1970s. Laskin is an innovator in acoustic guitar design - he originated the built-in armrest and ribrest edge beveling. He also co-developed the sideport soundhole. His steel-string, classical and flamenco guitars are known and coveted around the world. Laskin is also a master of inlays and sometimes uses his guitars as canvases for engraved inlay art. His years of craftsmanship have been recognised with both the Order Of Canada (in 2012) and the Saidye Bronfman Award for Excellence (in 1997).
