Meetings & Events

Next Meeting: Sunday, April 30, 2023

Special Guest: Michael Bashkin

Michael Bashkin (, @bashkin_guitars) is a custom guitar builder and repairman in Fort Collins, CO. He has an intimate understanding of the mechanics of wood, thanks to his post-graduate studies and teaching experience in tropical forestry in Central America. His guitars feature some breathtaking, wood-inlaid headstocks, endgrafts, and rosettes. Michael also hosts the Luthier on Luthier podcast, in which he interviews his fellow builders about their contributions to the art of lutherie.

Join us via Zoom on April 30, as Michael takes us on a virtual tour of his workshop, tells us about his lutherie journey, and answers your questions about guitarmaking technique.

After our time with Michael, we will open up the floor for Show & Tell. Show us projects you’ve been working on, new tools and techniques you’ve been trying out—anything lutherie-related you’d like to share with the group.

Hope to see you all there!
