Another Asher joins the crew!

Wednesday, February 25, 2009
We are so happy that Robert Asher is back working with Asher Guitars!! Welcome back Robert! Robert, who is Bill's younger brother, worked with us 4 years ago performing repairs and doing specialty guitar work. He left for awhile to pursue other interests, but now he's back!

Robert is an incredibly creative artist with a great eye for detail. He is formally educated at Otis Parsons School of Art and Design in Los Angeles, and has remained creative ever since.  We are glad to have him back on our guitar team.

Asher in new book titled "With Strings Attached: The Art and Beauty of Vintage Guitars"

Friday, February 6, 2009
Bill Asher is featured in yet another book titled "With Strings Attached: The Art and Beauty of Vintage Guitars," by best-selling author and guitar collector Jonathan Kellerman. This book, which highlights Kellerman's favorites in his world-class collection of guitars, contains lavish photos, fun histories and personal anecdotes.  Asher is the first featured guitar builder in the book (thanks to a last name starting in A) and contains a beautiful photograph of a Ben Harper Series I Limited Edition lap steel that Asher custom build for Kellerman. It has abalone trim throughout, gold hardware and a stain finish over crazy curly koa wood. It is stunning. This is a great hard-back collectors book for anyone who can appreciate art or music. With Strings Attached  can be found at all major book stores including Barnes and Noble and Amazon.
