Project Gemini: The inspiration for Project Gemini actually goes back to my days as a high school student in Toronto in the late '60s. I was quite an avid guitar player and followed my heroes of the day: Gordon Lightfoot, James Taylor, Stephen Stills, Neil Young, Paul Simon, Cat Stevens. I had a six-string dreadnought guitar that was given to me by my parents -- an Eko, made in Italy. And I spent the earnings from my first summer job to buy a matching 12-string. It seemed that every serious guitar player needed to have both to cover the standard folk-rock repertoire. So, Project Gemini set out to build two matching dreadnought guitars -- one a 6-string, the other a 12. As much as possible, the various components were crafted from the same pieces of timber -- the tops, the fingerboards, the bridges, bracing and all of the binding. This album documents various stages of the parallel build, and has some pictures of the finished instruments.
