It looks like the old Sacramento Valley Luthiers Guild is defunct. Is there anybody out there who would like to see a new association take its place? It might be a good way to trade tools and molds and look over each others' shoulders.

I hope you find some takers.
In fact I have an idea that we should see if we can get areas to hook up. Maybe Tommy or Sean can set up a LOCAL LUTHIER GROUP area so people can find a group or at least someone local.

I'm a bit south in the San Joaquin Valley, but I'd love to get to know other builders in the area.
Where are you located? I'm in Visalia, south of Fresno.

Thanks, John and Tommy. I guess I'll be the first to introduce it.

I'm in Sacramento, California. I make mostly mandolins now but am starting to build guitars.
