“Grit’s a genius.”—Peggy Seeger, musician and activist

Grand Complications is the story behind the story of fifty of these original designs from 2003 to the present. It is a look inside guitarmaker William "Grit" Laskin’s creative process—how he teases out a client’s interests and intentions, how he develops and refines his ideas, and how he brings them to life in his mind and on paper.

From “Short Stories” that fill only the headstock of a guitar to full narratives that run the length of the neck, each inspired design is the product of research, deep thinking, and a little alchemy. Featured here are projects ranging from an homage to John Lennon to a paean to humpback whales to a tribute to the fall of the Berlin Wall.
