Ryan Spencer

Four of those years were spent studying luthiery under various apprenticeships, never staying too long with one teacher – although he did spend a great deal of extra time with his last teacher, who just recently moved away. Ryan is in the process of working to stabilize his custom guitar building services to other players. He is also one of the founding members of the band Void who actively gig and have 2 demo albums of their material on sale.
