Victor man crafts guitars for customers worldwide

James White holds one of his custom steel string guitars at his workshop near Victor on the afternoon of Aug. 18. White builds both classical and steel string guitars and uses a variety of tone woods to create his one-of-a-kind guitars. Starting from a slab of wood, it takes White 200 to 300 hours to complete each guitar. Monte LaOrange /

VICTOR — James White doesn’t just build classical acoustic guitars — each of his creations is filled with his blood, sweat and tears.
