Dave Schneider began building custom guitars after studying with Jim D'Aquisto in 1977. Acoustic guitar making, classical guitar making, and guitar repair eventually led to an interest in the history of musical instrument making. David traveled to India to learn the techniques and philosophy of the Indian luthiers and now also offers a repair service for Indian instruments in Bearsville, NY. David also studied the early construction techniques of lute making and other Medieval and Renaissance instruments with Lawrence D. Brown. This knowledge and experience is incorporated into the construction of fine handmade Schneider guitars.
