The Guild of American Luthiers
Tacoma, WA

The Guild of American Luthiers (GAL) is a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) educational membership organization whose purpose is to facilitate learning about the art, craft, and science of lutherie. Membership in the Guild is open to everyone.

Started by a group of budding craftsmen in 1972, the Guild of American Luthiers has grown to become a driving force in the current “Golden Age” of lutherie through its constant commitment to a free exchange of information among luthiers of all areas and experience levels. Makers and repairers of guitars of all types, mandolins, violins, lutes, and other stringed instruments have found in the Guild’s publications and meetings a place to share their expertise and developing techniques, and to learn from the experience, successes, and trials of others in the field. In forty years GAL has published over a hundred journals, nine books, and dozens of instrument plans.

Thousands of members and hundreds of authors and presenters, including many of the world’s foremost luthiers, have supported the Guild’s free exchange of information and created a culture of openness that has helped advance the craft to the incredibly high level we see today. The Guild is supported solely through membership dues, sales of its publications, and donations (donations are tax deductible). Membership in 2013 includes over 3,600 craftspeople, interested people, and lutherie suppliers in the USA and 40 other countries.

GAL Headquarters is located in Tacoma, Washington, the hometown of our original and current staff, and location of our conventions.
