Workshops Have Moved to the Workshops Section
Matty Baratto stopped in at Borealis the other day and brought this beautiful, historical guitar he made out of a 90 year old maple tree. The tree had stood on Howard Street in Hibbing and was cut down because it was diseased. He took a couple of pieces of wood home to California and created this beautiful sounding guitar called a cig fiddle.
Matty makes guitars out of cigar boxes. Most notable is one he made for Paul McCartney of the Beatles. He also made a wine box into an amplifier for Sir Paul. It was amazing that he came and shared his music and talent with us.
