    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.
