A great friend and fabulous luthier passed away this past Wednesday.

Many of the older OLF'ers may remember Craig Sullivan, who is known for his great artistry with his instruments.
Craig built everything from archtops to ukuleles, and recently wrote an article for GAL offering up plans for his three sizes of ukuleles.
Craig operated his guitar business under the name Stetson Guitars (http://stetsonguitars.com/).
There are very few people that you meet in this life who you really connect with on a deep personal level. For me, Craig was one of those people. I love him like a brother, and will miss him terribly.

That's sorry news indeed, Don. I didn't know Craig personally but do recall seeing some lovely examples of his work.

It is horrible news. Craig was such a sweet and wonderful person. He will be sorely missed by many, including me.

Sad. Did not know him. Thanks for noting this. Every builder should be remembered.
