Thomas Viloteau , France, GFA/Tarrega winner, and his cats (the second cat didn't want to take a picture)  Video          "Mark Usherovich is not just an experienced craftsman, he is also an artist who understands how sound works. His guitars have this definite character that is only found in top instruments: they are soulful and often push the musician in new directions.          Most importantly, Mark is closely listening to what players expect from an instrument, and each new guitar he’s made since I’ve know him has been even better than the last. I can’t wait to hear and play what he’ll make next..."         Thomas Viloteau, France
