Luthiery is a labor of love and patience. Many parts of building or repairing an instrument require hours of minute attention to detail. You can’t rush or take shortcuts. I feel that understanding the personal connection a musician makes with an instrument is a great asset to finely honed skills. I am always moved by the look on customers faces when they see their “lost cause” restored to brand new condition.
