    I'm looking for a good luthier in the Atlanta area. Surely someone out there knows of one. I haven't had my guitars looked at since I moved to the south.

    I noticed a few people asking for a UK List. I have just started a Tech - Repair business in the UK (South West) and am looking to grow my business.

    I have not posted much on mylespaul but have learned a great deal from this great site. I have been working on guitars since the late 70s starting with basic setups through to full custom builds but have been employed in the electronics industry (23 years) and for the last six years I have been a high school teacher (Engineering and Construction) but I cannot keep away from guitars so I am trying now to make a living from it.

    Web Site SMP Artizan Home of "The Guitar Tech Dude Man" | Guitar and Tube Amp Repair and Construction in the Trowbridge Area (South West UK)
    Emailstewart.palmen@smpartizan.com

    I aim to post any interesting work I gain or if there is something I am doing that others may find interesting.

    Support much appreciated

    Very surprised Joe Glaser isn't on the Nashville list. He's only like the best tech in the Tri-state area. He was the first guy to tech others in the USA how to use a PLEK machine, fixes all the Nashville Stars guitars and worked with Gibson on the B-Bender. Best shop I've ever been too and reasonable rate. He's about a mile from Guitar Center in Nashville. I highly suggest if your anywhere within 3 hours of his shop.

    Guitar Luthier and Teacher Directory

    Anyone looking for UK based techs/ Luthiers, I found my previous tech on this list, Justin (JMO).

    It's a pretty good list, not sure how often it gets updates

    Anyone in the tampa bay area willing to take on a apprentice in the business of lutherie? I'm self-taught with many of the basic routines of maintaining electric guitars and basses, but I really want to not only learn how to perform more advanced feats of repair, but to also learn about building completely from scratch not only electrics, but acoustics as well.

    PMs are appreciated!

    I just found out about Lay's Guitar and purchased a completely rebuilt 1976 Les Paul custom "black beauty" off Dan. Incredible work and Dan is very fair in his pricing. He's now setting up a Strat for me.

    I know most are custom luthiers that own their own shop, but I work for Guitar Center in Columbus, Ohio. I've got quite a bit of experience and for those jobs that need work outside my comfort zone, we have several extremely talented amp and woodworking specialists that I can connect you with in town.

    this thread and most of the other stickies in the luthier's corner desperately need to be updated.
