Strings: A Guitarmaker's Journey is the story of Michael Dunn, a young man who finds himself repairing guitars in a Canadian music shop during the late 1960s. When offered a chance to go to Spain to learn the luthier's art from a master, he enters the secret world of Spanish guitarmaking and spends the next several years apprenticing.

Dunn travels from Vancouver, crossing the Atlantic on a freighter to Mallorca. There, he meets master guitarmakers, gypsies, drunks, and prostitutes-all part of a swirling tumult where Spanish tradition collides with a fast-changing world.

Strings: A Guitarmaker's Journey documents the first six years of Dunn's five-decade long career as a master luthier and offers a rare insider's view of the colors, quirks, personalities, and idiosyncrasies of traditional Spanish guitarmaking.
