We have a large, well equipped shop housed in a former Odd Fellows lodge building built in 1906. We are pleased to offer bench space to individuals and small groups interested in learning about the art of Lutherie. We specialize in guitar repair and restoration instruction as well as electric guitar design and construction, but if you have other goals let us know, we can help with just about anything!

"If you're going to take lessons, you'll probably want to take them from teachers that possess a burning passion for what they're teaching. Gene Imbody and Erick Coleman will show you the bare basics all the way up to master level lutherie, with years of experience to back it up. Plus, they're funny, patient, music loving guys! Walking through the doors of United Lutherie is stepping into a world where music, science, and the pursuit of the perfect instrument are laid bare on the table. You will be taught by masters of the art in the direct, hands on application of all aspects of repair and construction. All in a really amazing building with every tool you can think of, and some you haven't! I can't recommend them highly enough."

repair and restoration."
