"Industry-recognized career training. Our grads get jobs. Every class and every project has been
developed over years to give you a real knowledge of lutherie. You'll build excellent instruments
here, and when you graduate you can say much more than "I made that." You'll understand guitar
design, construction and materials. You'll know why your guitars (and others) sound the way they do.
You'll be ready to work in the field of lutherie."
| || || A career in lutherie
starts with the right tools. |
We serve leading lutherie schools by supplying their
students with tools of the trade. The students benefit by owning and mastering specialized

aspiring guitarmakers who will never attend a lutherie school, these lists are valuable
recommendations. Whether you're an apprentice, or starting out on your own, we make it easy to order
