Hello Jason,

No cheese, good communication! Like all of our luthiers, you're a specialist with a hard to reach market. Go for it and good luck to you! I have enjoyed the chance to hear you play again and how lovely it is to hear Cary Savage playing one of your guitars too,

Best wishes, V

Jason,

You are truly an artist!
It is obvious that you take a tremeandous amount of pride in your work.

Regards,
Marco

Thanks for sharing photos. Your guitars are indeed a work of art. What type of spruce top is that with the silky lines? Is this a form of bear claw or is it called something else?

Thanks, Pacman. That is European spruce with some lush bearclaw in the photographs.

My Lutherie Blog.

Post by Jason Wolverton » Fri Dec 18, 2009 12:29 am

I just started a blog that will feature various projects that I'm working on along with the occasional bit of nonsense that I'm interested in at the moment. Check it out if you're bored.

I hope you don't mind if we check it out if we're NOT bored.

I'm looking forward to when you post some of your completed guitars as well.

Regards,

Paul

Thanks, Jason...

I really like your work. I think you make some of the most attractive rosettes around. I am a fan of the arts and crafts style.

I don't know much about bracing, but your take on lattice bracing looks quite a bit different than anything I've seen. What's the theory/inspiration behind it?

Thanks

Accepting 2 lutherie students.

Post by Jason Wolverton » Wed Jun 29, 2011 7:08 am

People on this forum probably are not aware that I usually have four lutherie students at any given time. I recently have had two students complete their instruments, so I have availability for two new students.

Students work on a traditional classical guitar in the Spanish style. One on one instruction takes place in my shop. Instruction is $40 per hour. Coming once a week, you will have a completed guitar in approximately 6 months. Previous woodworking experience is not mandatory to complete a wonderful instrument with my assistance.

Exactly the kind of thing I'd love to do someday...

Seattle to Laguna Beach is kind of a tough commute, though. :shock:

That IS a long drive! The lessons are quite enjoyable for both parties. I enjoy teaching, and I've met some really nice people. Also, guitar making is pretty solitary so it's nice to have some conversation. I know that from the perspective of a student, it's really exciting to build your first guitar. Although, at the end it seems like you've just run a marathon. Nothing worth learning is easy!
