    I've been curious on how to become a luthier, are there "schools" for people who wants to be luthiers or is it like a father-to-son-heritage-job?
    Are there any luthiers in Sweden?

    How much money does a luthier spend on raw material(Wood, Hardware) for an average handmade bass?
    Do you need any special tools or is it enough with the ol' bandsaw in the garage?

    I would be thrilled if any luthiers out there could answer these questions.

    Great question. I know it's been answered before yet I cant find that thread. Try putting this in the Luthier's Corner; youll get a much better response in there.
