    Other than mentioning a repair man, is there any luthiery involved here?

    Being a guitar Repairman doesn't make you a Luthier. Not by a long long loooooong shot.

    wow, does the guitar count as a fatality?
  5. Yeah, pay attention here.. Doc himself said it....

    Doc has also been designing guitars for years." My thing is semi-hollow electric guitars that are very linear at high volumes and very tone-y like a lot of the old guitars people are paying huge dollars for".

    Any other snobby comments from other 'experts' on what constitutes "luthiery"? Oh yeah, wait... there was one more:

    stflbn "Being a guitar Repairman doesn't make you a Luthier. Not by a long long loooooong shot".
  6. (Great...great then make sure you call Doc yourself with those assessments so full of knowledge..)
  7. A luthier (pronounced /ˈljuːti.ər/) is someone who makes or repairs stringed instruments.

    A good example of why you can't affort NOT to have insurance on the contents as well as the building. A darn shame.
