Paul Chabot

Chabot Parlor Classic

Chabot Guitars - Paul Chabot offers quality hand made Classical guitars (Colorado, USA) "Paul first apprenticed under guitar maker / repairman Robert Buchanan, where he became familiar with the aspects of guitar repair, and guitar refinishing. Furthering his ability and knowledge, Paul attended Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery where he learned the basics of wood, instrument design and guitar making.

Not long after graduating from Roberto-Venn, Paul was fortunate enough to apprentice under world renowned Master guitar maker Augustino Lo Prinzi. Through Augustino Lo Prinzi, Paul was able to learn some of the most proven methods and advanced techniques of fine guitar making."

Unfortunately, Paul is no longer in business.
