Learn Local: Daniel Roberts Stringworks

Local guitar maker Dan Roberts will teach us about acoustic guitars and what goes into building and customizing them on Monday, October 9 at 6:00 p.m. Please register for this free event below so we know how many people to expect!

Dan custom designs and builds a diverse range of instruments, from specialty instruments like the 16- and 17-string Contraguitars he has built for modern composer and artist Kevin Kastning, to traditional vintage-inspired Martin and Gibson style instruments and more modern designs of his own, including the flattop guitar style octave mandolins which are very popular! His shop also does a large portion of high-end guitar and mandolin repairs, especially for the Bozeman area.

Dan’s guitars have gone or are going to such talents as: Robert Plant, Dave Stewart, Brian May, John Jorgenson, Brent Mason, Waddy Wachtel, David Frizzell, Don Everly, Duane Eddy, Sonny Curtis, Stevie Nicks, Eric Clapton, Joe Walsh, Don MacLean, and TBone Burnett.

In 2017 Dan was unanimously inducted into the Montana Circle of American Masters by the Montana Arts Council.
