Is there a "Luthier School"

I leave for a few days and when I get back it seems a lot of you are now speaking a foreign language.

I thought I was having a near death experience, only to survive to come back to this?  Oh well, the comeback is the important part.

Heart - again.

I think it was brought on by stress and some physical work that had me sweating like Patrick Ewing at the foul line (basketball reference again).  It was that or the fact I was at the music store and was playing a couple of 12 strings and despite my insistence that I never wanted one (I hate stringing a guitar), I found myself hopelessly in love with both.  Started working a trade when I came to my senses.  Also looked at a resonator guitar.  I think all the excitement, combined with the stress just did me in.

Oh well, life goes on.

Sorry to hear that Strum. I'm putting you on strict regimen of relaxing and taking it easy. Seriously, slow down a bit bud.

I'll take your advice.  I'm taking the day off to get some rest and play some guitar.  Due to all the work I never got a chance to play guitar with the exception to the visit to the music store.

In the mean time you could take Shiner's Introduction to Wood class. It's open to everyone. [:D]

Strum, Do be careful and stay away from that nasty viagra.  
Maybe you should take up a safer hobby for a while.

Hey Dugly, you want to do some white knuckle kayaking,then come North and we'll take you out to places quaranteed to turn anyones hair white for the rest of your life, as for luthiers,well instead of a school,forget that,appertice with a local builder, often if you go in begging to start off doing grunt work for free, some have been know to start teaching,so grasshopper snatch the pepple from the masters hand and start your long journey,as for most schools that can teach, well my friend you are going to be looking at the minimum of 6-9 months and then apperenticing with someone well before you will be building any guitars worth there weight.Ship

Don't be so sure about that.  The nudist resort my wife and I used to live at had shuffleboard court.

It got pretty rough on the ol' ticker at times.[;)][:p][:p][:0]
