Well I’m in a bit of a quandary now. I don’t know where I fit in to these luthier lists. I build guitars, sell a few but don’t rely on it to survive. Does this make me an amateur? (perhaps the professional luthiers are those eating sawdust) However I do earn part of my living setting up and repairing guitars for a wholesale musical instrument distributor. Does this make me a professional?
My forum name of “Mearnscraft” is the name I put in my own instruments i.e. Mearnscraft Guitars however I also sign them with my own name which is Euan Hannah.
Anyway I enjoy participating in the forum, listed or unlisted, professional or amateur. It is a great resource to players and luthiers alike.
