Live: Our First Ever Virtual Masterclass with TJ Thompson and Mark Stutman (August 12, 2021)
Over the course of nearly 50 issues and hundreds of podcasts, we’ve interviewed many of the world’s best luthiers. On August 12, 2022, we’ll be hosting our first-ever virtual “masterclass” with two of these figures: and Mark Stutman (). This pair of Fretboard Summit alums are admired around the world for their vintage Martin and Gibson (respectively) repairs; they’re also no strangers to the pages of our print magazine and our podcast. Every time I speak to them, I learn something new.
During this 90 minute Zoom workshop (which I’m sure will fly by), I’ll pick the brains of these two luthiers on the care, feeding and maintenance of vintage flattop guitars. We’ll hear a bit about their craft, their latest guitar discoveries and the issues / repairs that keep them up at night. With any luck, you’ll be even more informed when it’s time to buy, sell or fix your next guitar.
The workshop is being hosted by Chicago’s famed Old Town School; the future of home of the next Fretboard Summit. It takes place August 12, 2021 at 7:00 pm. (Central Time). Consider it a glimpse at some of the guitar geek fun that awaits when can all safely meet in-person. .
