Claude Watson was a precise and revered luthier who perfected the fine art of handcrafted instrument building. He was known for his clever design and complex inlay work in country-style flat tops and a series of violins, cellos, and string basses. He most enjoyed building the guitar and was always willing to show off his current projects, or provide a tour of the large pile of wood he acquired and stored in his back yard. His guitar series was Emmanuel, which Claude took from the Bible as one of the names for Christ.
