We established Whetstone Instruments in 2012 to help spread the word about the guitars, mandolins, and ukuleles being made at the school by luthier Scott Hausmann.
Scott has been building musical instruments in the Brattleboro area since 1975 when he studied guitar making with Gib Taylor and Michael Gurian at Marlboro College. After his graduation Scott worked as a shop foreman at Gurian Guitars, and he’s also worked in various capacities as part of the team at Froggy Bottom Guitars. Scott is now Director of the Whetstone School of Lutherie where he teaches the guitar, mandolin, and ukulele building courses.
Scott builds lots of instruments in the course of his work teaching, and they seem to be multiplying like rabbits! Most of them are modest designs without many bells and whistles, but look a liitle bit closer and you'll find finely handcrafted musical instruments that look beautiful, play great, and sound even better.
