letsgocoyote Posted March 18, 2007 Report Share Posted March 18, 2007 Sorry if this is not the correct forum to post this in, but it seemed like the best fit to me. Feel free to move. Just a couple questions for those luthiers and builders who build guitars for money. 1) Did you always plan to build guitars to sell, or did you start strictly as a hobby and it happened from there? 2) How did you start selling guitars and/or what was your first sale? 3) How long have you been doing it? 4) What style of guitars do you build in? Do you build completely custom guitars to a clients wishes, or customized versions of your own models to clients specs? Do you sell guitars with no client in mind? 5) How much do you sell your guitars for, and why? I'd appreciate a variety of responses. I'm just curious mostly. I'm building my 2nd guitar now, after building the first was pretty fun, and I wanted to make it much better. I think if I can develop enough skill (particular I want to get better at finishing, which is half the reason I am building a second!) I could maybe want to do this kind of thing for a career (or on the side). Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
