Play upright bass and guitar for over 40 years. Owned a guitar shop for a number of years where I did repairs and restorations, specializing in upright basses and vintage guitars. This is where I met Chuck and we’ve spent many hours talking about stringed instruments and his passion for building them. I am proud to say that I have just become the proud owner of a Willer Grand Concert – It is a wonderful instrument – the clarity and breadth of tone, the ease of play and the impeccable minimalist finish are, IMHO, some of the reasons that this is such a well-balanced instrument. Having seen much of his work, I can clearly state that if you’re looking for a SUPERB musical instrument, with or without the embellishments, Chuck deserves a hard look.
