Luther is a luthier - at least part-time (aren't they all?)
His main job is a wildlife biologist for the city of Chicago
(what was that? Wildlife in Chicago you ask? Well, all you
have to do is walk a couple of streets off the "Gold Coast"
or Rush street - and you'll see "wildlife"). Luther likes to
stay focused so he's also a taxidermist, a magician, a bat
researcher and a "deer researcher".
As for his guitars, he studied under
a student of Bozo's, (is that like making a tape copy of a
copy of a copy?), so his guitars look similar. Has built
more electrics than acoustics, but his acoustics are getting
a lot of people excited. He brought his two 12 strings to
WAB#2, and the most recent one blew all of us away.
Great for slide, plus it looks like the old Bozo
Kottke model, but with a cutaway. As noted above, Luther
researches bat's in his job, which has carried over to his
guitars - all the fingerboard inlays are stylized bats. Also
plays a '70 Bozo 6 string.
