Bevan Frost Luthier
I have dedicated my life to guitars, and have appreciated every moment of it. My early work was performed in isolation and ignorance. Through repetition and constantly seeking criticism I slowly mastered skill after skill. I am still inspired by the satisfaction of performing intricate processes that result in a work of beauty. At the age of 18 I decided that I was to be a Luthier, and soon afterwards I was handed an illness that shaped my character and my career. During the years I stayed under my Dad’s roof (thanks Dad) I was given a chance to truly pursue guitarmaking and get my bearings in the craft.
After a liver transplant in 2011, my wife and I bought a house in Frisco, Colorado. I built a garage, and we started a family. My guitars were in demand, and suddenly my world was nothing but my son and my guitars. Eleven years later, I have a 9 year old and a 5 year old, and I count my blessings that they are happy and healthy. The last decade has brought new frontiers for both work and family – what a wonderful life! I wake up every day so stoked to be a Dad and a Husband and a Luthier, I couldn’t be happier.
Lutherie has become a way to express my insistence that, despite the chronic illnesses I seem to be beset with, I WILL bring beauty into the world; I will inspire and create, and I will grow. This spirit flows through every guitar I build, and is part of what makes my work unique.
