Hello from Wisconsin. I am an amateur luthier, having completed 5 classical guitars over the past few years, most of which have turned out pretty well (didn't get the neck angle right on the first one, resulting in a too low bridge and not enough break angle over the saddle; live and learn!). I know I've got a lot to learn and would like to be included in the Amateur Luthier forum.

Hello Bruno,

I have brought your request to Mr. Delcamp's attention. It might take a day or two, so please be patient. :wink:

I hope I qualify for the special coloured name too.

I've built some instruments from kits, so far, years 2000-2005, an 8 course lute, then 2 renaissance citterns, then a renaissance guitar... a gap, then started a 6 course lute a few years ago... reached neck glued to body stage then got distracted by other things. Next stage the soundboard - haven't come up with a good fresh rose design yet - maybe tomorrow :mouton:

When that's completed I hope I'll get onto building instruments from scratch - I certainly want to. Taking the time away from other pursuits is the stumbling block.

I always make my own top nuts and bridge saddles (sawing up marrow bones intended for doggies) for my classical guitars etc., showing signs of a reasonable 'from scratch' attitude,

Martin.

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.


:bravo:

Hi,
I am half way through building my 3rd guitar now after converting my garage into a workshop last year and I am now completely hooked.
Made everything from scratch including rosette using some burr from a plum tree I cut down in the garden.
1st one came out pretty well (I used the Bogdanovich book) although plenty of mistakes I know about (I know where to look) and 2nd instrument was a definite improvement. Pictures of finished instruments and the build process on my website.

Please could you add me to the list.
Thanks
David

Hi my complete name is Carlos J. Espinosa Tarrago ... i build and i'm selling instrument , i repair , restore and set up , mainly classical and flamenco guitars . But i don't really consider myself a professional luthier , a least not yet . I believe i haven't build my signature guitar yet , i've been experimenting whit different methods as far as the availability of building material in my country ( by the way i'm from Argentina ) allows some experimentation. But i think that is a long process a long road , so i don't consider myself a professional luthier yet , and i'd like to be included in the amateur list . Thanks a lot . Carlos.

Hello,

I'm working on my first build right now--it's a SP/IRW Hauser/Elliott style. I hope to get it done in time for the GAL convention this summer! Can you add me to the list?

Thanks,

Hi,

I have built two guitars to date. Most recent was a Flamenco built while a student with Gerard Gilet.

Just setting up my workshop after moving to a new house, looking forward to starting my next guitar soon.

Please add me to the list.

Regards,
William
