Wallpusher Handmade Wooden Bass Guitars

A few weeks back I had the pleasure of shooting behind the scenes workings of Matt Rogers and Margot Garroty's guitar making operation Wallpusher. Matt is hands down THE most creative person I have ever ever met. That is saying a lot because i have been in the company of some pretty impressive creatives throughout my life. It takes a lot to impress me and this man left me speechless on many occasions.
Just to give you an idea, Matt built each wooden bass guitar by hand.... and he even handcrafted the tools (the metal and the handles) that cut down the trees then felled and plane the wood that eventually become what you see below.



check out these beauties....

Matt and Margo are engaged to be married and check out her awesome engagement ring! Matt made it out of wood! :)



This last shot sums up how Matt looked at Margo pretty much the entire time. complete adoration!






Here is a quick slideshow of a few more images behind the scenes :)
