Charlie Hoffman has been handcrafting acoustic guitars since 1970. With a love of woodworking and guitars, Charlie builds bright and powerful sounding instruments that are meant to be played. A Hoffman guitar is ideal for longtime customer and renowned fingerstyle guitar player Tim Sparks, who plays with dynamic range all over the neck. Charlie demonstrates bending guitar sides, building braces to support the micro-thin guitar top and applying the glue that holds it all together. Charlie Hoffman has built more than 600 guitars in his shop in Minneapolis.
