New Green Roster Luthier! Tim Sway Perspectives
Tim Sway's mission is to "make nice things for nice people out of things that would otherwise be thrown away."
"After a 15+ year career as a performing, recording and teaching musician, I recently "retired" from being a full-time musician to spend more time making things out of reclaimed, upcycled and salvaged materials- and to spend more time with my family and less time in band flop houses! I often make things out of discarded instruments and instruments out of discarded things. One of my long-term goals is to make high quality, sustainable, handmade instruments from locally sourced and reclaimed materials that are affordable for working class musicians-like myself." -Tim Sway
This environmentally conscious luthier makes beautiful guitars and innovative guitar stands, among his many other upcycled products (like a pinball machine desk!). Check out his awesome youtube channel, facebook, and website for more information.
