S. Talkovich apprenticed and worked at Arrowhead Guitars in Duluth, Mn, a shop that specialized in six and twelve string acoustic guitars and repairs and restorations in the 1970s. He learned from two luthiers who had worked with long time builder Charles Hoffmann from Minneapolis. In the early 1990s he built custom "T" style guitars with phenolic and wood composite necks with one piece swamp ash bodies (a few with artwork engraving) working out of Greg Curbows shop in North Georgia (visit Early Guitars). Years of gigging and a desire for something better compelled him to design the T90 model for late Blues Guitarist and friend, Sean Costello.
