So you want to be a luthier…

“One day I decided I was just gonna build a guitar.”

That’s how Gillian Marsh from Boulder, Colorado starts her story of the road that led her to Phoenix, Arizona and the Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery.

I visited the School this week, and Assistant Director and Financial Manager Bart Applewhite showed me around and told me about the school, the curriculum, cost, and of course guitars.

Gillian digs the gig at the school. She had built more than one guitar before she came to Phoenix, but this experience is different.

“I’ve learned twice as much in a quarter of the time,” she said.
