The Guild of American Luthiers
15th National Convention/Exhibit
Wednesday-Sunday, July 22-26, 1998

The convention was great! There were lots of interesting lectures and demonstrations. It was good to see the other builders' instruments and to swap ideas. I even got to play in some of the concerts in the evenings!

One of the most asked questions I get is:
"How do I build my own bass guitar?"

While I enjoy sharing tips and information, my time is valuable to me and it is very difficult to teach someone how to build an instrument through emails! On my Links page you will find a list of sites and reference materials I recommend.

Two of the most helpful organizations that I strongly recommend that you join are
Guild of American Luthiers http://www.luth.org/
and
The Association of Stringed Instrument Artisans http://www.guitarmaker.org/
