Welcom to Other Cathedrals
This is the guitar collection of Kaki King, housed in a beautiful private setting that doubles as a recording studio. After years of recording and touring Kaki realized that she had far too many guitars to play and maintain. She had also met many aspiring guitarists who were struggling with the quality of their instrument, or who had never had the luxury of playing a high-end or handcrafted guitar. She felt like the best way to solve these two problems was to bring the guitars and the people together, and give them both the privacy and time they deserved.
The thirty-odd instrument collection contains beautiful dreadnought acoustic guitars, parlor guitars, mini 12 strings, one of a kind electrics, lap steels, a doubleneck pedal steel, a harp guitar, and more. Each guitar is set up in a unique way, using string configurations, pickups, and other techniques to make it one of a kind. Many were commissions from luthiers with whom Kaki has had long relationships. There are some fantastic amps, pedals galore, and lots of fun guitar add ons such as the Vo-96 and the Tonewood amp.
We are currently offering lessons that range from beginners to advanced, including private lessons with Kaki herself. We offer recording services with either your own engineer, or one of our talented in house engineers.
Taking the name from Adrian Legg's album, "Guitars and Other Cathedrals," the library and studio is currently an experiment in what happens when you put together guitars + privacy + time. Please email email@example.com or send us a private facebook message to apply for a visit. No one will be turned away simply for lack of funds.
