John Young Faces the Music

There's another interesting article up on the Lincoln Now site, and it's music to our ears. In spite of his high school counselor's skepticism, John Young has succeeded in making a career out of making violins. He attended several schools to learn the intricacies of the craft, and now has insight to spare when it comes to this unique trade.

“You can’t escape your own style," he says. "It’s funny how that is. But each violin maker’s violins are unique to (that particular maker)—always. It’s very weird. It’s every little idiosyncrasy that you do that makes it your own. But I have a depth of knowledge of wood. So I’m able to select wood that’s very close to what they used back in Cremona, where violins were perfected.”
