Professional luthiers build guitars for money. Amateur luthiers build guitars as a hobby and not as their main source of income. The word amateur comes from 'amato' (love). It is certainly not a (dis)qualification! The amateur luthiers can use their forum name, the professionals are obliged to be known on this forum by their real name.GuitarVlog wrote:How will we distinguish the professionals from the amateurs?

It's a great idea to identify luthiers with a group color, however, I've seen an instance of a professional luthier that still shows up as blue. It's also worth noting that the darker and lighter shades of violet are hard to distinguish unless they're side-by-side.Paul wrote:Yes. Look at the bottom of the front index page and you'll see the colours of the various groups: Admins, Mods, Luthiers, Amateur Luthiers etc.
