1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    My name is Kevin Paradise. I'm a lefty player who's been building my own stuff for 30 yrs. When your a lefty & broke, you become a Luthier quick.
    I have been a machinist, welder & fabricator by trade since 1978, these are good skills for guitar making.I have worked as Luthier at least part time since '86. It allowed me to earn extra income & get incredible deals on gear. Im sure all my Lutherie salary went towards gear. Ive owned several hundred lefties over the years, about 60 at home now.
    I work at great shop in Orlando called Marks Street Music. I have a cozy boutique style repair shop. I love working on guitars, making a customers dream become reality. I love guitar questions, feel free to e-mail me if you need some advise or tips

    Cheers

    Hey, Kevin. Welcome to TGP. I'd like to have some luthier skills, but don't.
