Film Synopsis:

"American Luthier" is a documentary short about a guitar-maker whose client list includes some of the greatest guitar players in the world.
 
"American Luthier" recounts Randy Parsons' transformation from aspiring musician to guitar-maker. The guitar had been Parsons' identity since he was a child, but after studying classical and jazz guitar in college, he realized that he would never make a living as a musician.  So he gave it up -- and then one day he had a vision of how the guitar would come back into his life. Now he's creating instruments that are sought after by musicians such as Jack White and Jimmy Page.
 
This is a film about someone who gave up their passion for playing guitars and discovered that they had a passion for making guitars. Parsons’ success is a testament to doing what we love in life and work, even if it requires taking a second look at your dreams, and finding a different way to be a rock star.
