Lewry does not have formal training in instrument building or engineering, but he did study in Dharamshala, India, with a Tibetan man named Kunga, who hand-built a traditional instrument called the dramyin. (Lewry and Kunga are pictured together in the photo frame at the bottom left of the image.)
Lewry learned to craft instruments with hand tools and applied this knowledge to guitars before setting out with his video guitar designs.
