Prizes awarded to Youri:
- second prize at the III Antonia Marin Montero Guitar Making Competition in Granada, Spain
We met French-Ukrainian guitar builder Youri Soroka at the 2018 Guitar Making Competition in Granada, Spain and were immediately impressed with both the person and his work. Youri’s backstory is almost as beautiful as the look and sound of his instruments. Here he describes how he went from a career in technology to falling in love with the craft of guitar building.
