Steven McCann :
Head and Master Luthier
Women's head violin scroll made by the one and only Steve McCann.
We are very grateful to have Steven as a part of Guarneri House's team of luthiers.
Steven McCann holds a Bachelor of Arts from Iowa State University.
Steven has been making, repairing and restoring instruments for over 35 years. After working at Bein and Fushi, he worked in Pittsburgh before moving to Grand Rapids to join the Guarneri House where he has since served as our head luthier.
Steven has himself made over forty instruments and is an expert not only on making, but restoring and repairing violins, violas, and cellos. His hand made instruments are recognized for their excellent craftsmanship, easy "playability" and aesthetic beauty. We only know the whereabouts of a handful of instruments so if you own a McCann instrument, please share pictures of your instrument as well as your whereabouts!
