Mark Dobbins Interview on Custom Guitars
SacTV.com "Video of the Day" review by Alex Cosper on February 28, 2013

Mark Dobbins joined me on Thursday afternoon, February 28, 2013, for a SacTV interview at his home, where he creates custom guitars, ukeleles, mandolins and banjos. He also works on guitar repairs and restoration at Northridge Music, Strum Shop and Tim's Music. In this interviews he talks about preparing for a festival in Sparks, Nevada where he will showcase his custom guitars April 12-13 at the Golden Nugget. This interview is the first in a series that gives an overview about his craft. He's been making guitars now for about 14 years and has been playing guitar since a young age. This interview shows scenes of his workshop in his garage. Some of the places where he performs includes Vintner's Cellar and Strings in Rancho Cordova. He likes to take his time to make sure each guitar is made as carefully as possible with the best possible look, sound and feel. I met Mark last Saturday night at Ken Koenig's gig at Vintner's Cellar. You can see a clip of Mark's performance here.
