    I've started a Google map of double bass luthiers. So far, there are mostly German workshops, but international locations will follow soon.
    To view the map, go to:
    www.kontrabassblog.de (German) or
    www.doublebassguide.com

    That's a great idea Jonas! And a big project. :)

    Are you just going through Bob Gollihur's bass luthier pages and marking the map?

    Right, much work :meh: If someone wants to help me: a list with all the adresses (street, number, hometown, and website of each luthier in one single line) would be helpful. This way, I could just copy and paste with one single click into Google map to get a location.
    Bob's list doesn't include the street, so you need to go to each website. I think I will start with the most popular workshops first (sorry to all others: I still need some time for many other projects, earning money and practising db, too ;)
    So I don't expect to have finished the Google map within the next days or weeks. However, Germany is more or less complete, already :)

    I won't have any time until I get a roof back on my house. :)

    But I'd be happy to set some addresses up for you. Probably not until December though.

    thanks in advance, that would be nice.
    BTW: why don't you have your address on your website?

    Because I don't want random thieves showing up at the house looking for nice instruments. :)
    Locks and alarms are okay but......

    Customers call or email and then they know where to find me. I prefer that people call ahead anyway, so I don't have someone coming in the door just when I'm, say, gluing something because glue waits for no man.
