The Resource Center is a repository for those things our members have found helpful and want to share. This includes articles on guitar making and technology, a list of various lutherie suppliers, resources, and related links.

We encourage members to submit information or material they have found useful and we will post it here. Have something you want to add to this page?  Please send an email to with your links, comments, or content, and we will try to incorporate your suggestion as soon as we can.
