WUCF TV’s ARTISODES explores customs guitars

Posted by Jennifer Cook on

On this week’s edition of Artisodes, meet a New Smyrna Beach man who’s a roofer by trade, but a guitar builder at night.  Joe Muni handcrafts the instruments from wood salvaged from local resources and each have their own sound.

“They’ve got history to them,” said Muni.  “We worked out in Cassadaga in our roofing business and we put a roof on the bookstore out there.  So I got a bunch of wood from that, and when we tore the old 100 year old boards off the roof, you could smell the incense in it.  You could smell it in the guitar for the longest time.”

WUCF’s Artisodes airs each Thursday on WUCF TV at 8 p.m.
