    Default Central Kansas Professional Luthier

    I have been practicing and learning acoustic instrument repair over the past few years, thinking this would be a nice hobby/side job for my rapidly approaching retirement years. However after I saw this local Craigslist Ad: picture on page 2

    I don't think I can even begin to compete with the pros in my area. I better just hang up my clamps and woodglue.

    Yeah, sorry that's the end of you, my friend. You've been put out of business.

    Hey, the strings are practically new you know. That has to account for something.
