Benoît Lavoie is a Canadian luthier who specialises in archtop and flat top acoustic guitars. Beyond their aesthetic refinement, his instruments offer the musician a truly unique blend of acoustic balance and power. He strives for a consistently high sound quality in every instrument he makes - using an advanced acoustic analysis system he has developed in partnership with a company specializing in acoustic measurement. One thing that underlines Benoît’s craft is how he chooses to blend tonewoods, sometimes treading the classical route, sometimes experimenting with bold modern combinations. The delicate and simple ornamentations and his meticulous attention to details help bring out beauty and uniqueness of the wood. Although his work is based on the great stringed-instrument making tradition, he constantly seeks to redefine his approach so as to achieve the ultimate sound quality of the instrument.
