Talking Guitar: Joel Michaud

We recently had the pleasure of welcoming sensational Canadian Luthier Joel Michaud to our London Showroom as he came in to meet the proud new owner of a jaw-dropping Michaud Made 00-R in African Blackwood and Lutz Spruce as it passed into their hands for the very first time. 

While he was here we managed to find time to sit down on the sofa and talk some guitar; going through the models in front of us, changes in his instrument lineup and builds as well as what to expect from Michaud Made here at The North American Guitar in the near future! 

The two gorgeous guitars featuring in this interview are the afore mentioned 00-R, referred to as a no-frills ‘palette cleanser’, that packs every bit of Michaud magic into an elegant, clean cut aesthetic which now resides with one very happy owner, alongside the sensational J-R in Panama Rosewood and Sinker Cedar that first turned me onto Joel’s exceptional instruments and continues to inspire and captivate on a daily basis. 

Watch the interview here;
