Musical Instrument Case History
Steve has been a
lifelong musician and has been blessed to play some of the best
vintage stringed instruments. He has had an interest in the history
of the great American manufacturers of these instruments and an
equal fascination with the vintage cases that came with them. While
many books have been written about the builders of collectable
instruments, case manufacturers have been neglected. Therefore,
Steve has researched and published a brief history of several of these
legendary manufacturers of musical instrument cases.
