Lars Rasmussen, in his own words:
Twelve years ago I made my first guitars at Carl Malmsten School of Lutherie here in Stockholm. They only accepted two students every year so i was very fortunate to be able to do this. During my final year there I went to apprentice with Dana Bourgeois and his crew for four months. I worked in the part of the shop that voices and assembles bodies, during my time there we made about 120 guitars. I can't imagine a better place to learn about steel stringed guitars. When I was there I also got to know John Slobod and Laurent Brondel, -they also taught me a great deal. After leaving Maine I started my own shop back in Sweden, but in 2008 I went to study with Ervin Somogyi. I took his voicing class and also stayed in his shop for an extra four weeks to learn more from Ervin and his regular apprentices. Since then I have been making guitars here in Sweden.
