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.
