How the Gretsch Bi-Plane Was Built

Posted:

A longtime woodworking enthusiast, Gretsch Master Builder Stephen Stern does not just make some of the most beautiful and painstakingly-crafted guitars.

Recently, Stern built a biplane to live in the Gretsch Custom Shop in Corona, Calif., complete with the iconic Gretsch logo and a striking orange color.

The plane is made of balsa wood and is covered with tissue paper, and Stern himself estimates that it took between 75-100 hours to build.

Just how did this beauty come to fruition?  Luckily, Stern documented the entire process, which you can watch below.
