After graduating in theology and fine arts, Beau Hannam learned to build guitars in Gerard Gillet’s business in Australia. Beau then taught and built guitars with Gerard for the next 10 years before moving to the United States in 2010.
In episode 57, Beau reports on his time as a luthier in Australia and his reasons for leaving. He also tells us why he started making ukes, and we also learn more about his novel inlay techniques and his YouTube instructional videos. Finally, we go over a long list of people who shouldn’t be listening to this interview.
