This is one of Zach Lefebvre’s guitars, the Tree of Life. A stunning instrument.
I’ve decided that I need to learn a bit more about Canadian luthiers. And TreeHouse Guitars is certainly one to consider if you are looking for something that is truly Canadian and truly unique.
Zach is delivering only a few custom orders each year so the waiting list could be long, possibly two or three years. He does have a couple of guitars available on his website.
The artistic elements he puts into his guitars is extraordinary. The Cooper Dust guitar, which is currently available, has delightful touches like this maple leaf inset into the headstock.
From his website:
TreeHouse guitars have an ever-growing reputation as instruments with wonderful tone and masterly construction. Every guitar is built with meticulous attention to detail and a focus on craftsmanship and superior sound. TreeHouse Guitars are designed to respond to the needs and the goals of the player. Further making each instrument truly unique and outstanding, Treehouse guitars are embellished with astonishing custom pyrographic wood burnings whose artistry and design add a rich and distinctive element. The resulting guitars are exceptional, singular instruments fulfilling to both the ear and eye — a pleasure to play, to hear, and to see.
