About Me


Yellow Rose Lutherie is Steve Pollack, an amateur luthier based in Redwood City, CA.  I’ve been building and selling cigar box instruments for the last 3 years.  These include cigar box ukuleles and cigar box electric guitars.  Additionally I have build solid body lap steel and and in the midst of building a weissenborn lap guitar . I am self taught, care of the internet and have a natural curiosity about how to make things.  Things have included computers, computer programs, furniture, and now musical instruments.  I play finger-style guitar, lap steel, and am a  student of the mandolin.  My latest adventure is an iPad app for the multi-instrumentalist.
