Ever wondered how the Rosette is made and fitted into a guitar? I found out in this second instalment of short films I am making on guitar building featuring Scottish Luthier Michael Ritchie.

These films are all shot each in a single fairly short visit to Michael’s workshop. He works away in front of me, I ask some questions and explains the various techniques and approaches as he works. The style of filming is deliberately close in and hand held so as to capture the intricacies of the craft and atmosphere of the workshop.
