Welcoming all players
We are blessed to live during a new golden age of musical instruments. More and more players are creating and individualizing their instruments, and thus their music making, with the help of luthiers and other musical instrument artisans. Of course, artisans and musicians also work together to maintain and restore instruments both old and new.
LuthierBuilt is an international musician-facing community of independent makers, maintainers, and restorers of musical instruments and accessories; suppliers of instrument woods, tools and parts; and others involved in the musical instrument crafts. LuthierBuilt's vision is to give voice to these talented individuals and small shops, and to make it easy for players to find and connect with them. They are highly-skilled men and women who love their craft and who are committed to helping players at all levels achieve their musical dreams.
For those unfamiliar with the artisan alternative to today's mass-produced instruments, LuthierBuilt provides a window into this rich landscape — one that is highly personal, distinct and passionate. It is a landscape that provides exceptional value, beauty and art for a wide range of budgets.
This landscape also provides players with connection — connection with those who create and care for their instruments. This is a connection that can endure for a lifetime — a lifetime of great music making.

At LuthierBuilt, we stretch the traditional definition of luthier to mean any artisan from whose hands musical instruments pass into the hands of musicians. This artistic transfer is represented in LuthierBuilt's logo.
