Beau Hannam, Beau Hannam Guitars & Ukuleles
Beau Hannam studied luthiery at Gilet Guitars School of Luthiery in Sydney, Australia. Under the guidance of master luthier Gerard Gilet, he learned the how’s and why’s of every aspect of instrument building from selecting the very best tonewoods and top voicing, to the development and realization of a customer's vision and a perfect setup.
Beau eventually taught at Gilet and also worked as a full-time luthier at Gilet Guitars. Prior to studying luthiery, Beau studied fine arts, theology and philosophy. Now based in Colorado, it is through this rich tapestry of influences in art, music, culture and modes of thinking that Beau draws from to create one-of-a-kind custom instruments.
