The Fellowship of Acoustics in Dedemsvaart, the Netherlands, has grown tremendously fast, and with it our in-house repair- and setup department. This means we are looking for an experienced guitar repair technician or luthier to strengthen our team.
Your job will primarily be the setup of stringed instruments -acoustic and electric- for shipping. When those guitars are ready to be shipped, you will also have the opportunity to repair instruments for our in-store customers who come to us from all over the globe. You will have plenty of space and opportunity to develop your professional skills. The workshop crew is a small, sociable group of experienced luthiers each with their own unique set of skills. They thrive on learning from each other in order to increase the overall quality of the work they deliver.
We are looking for:
- A repair technician or luthier with experience and a passion for both acoustic and electric instruments
- Someone who is able to independently carry out repairs like:
o Performing instrument setup
o Repairing cracks
o Making a nut or bridge-saddle
o Installing/replacing a pickup (both acoustic and electric)
- Someone who has great attention for detail, technical insight and patience. We like to strive for perfection.
- Someone with a good command of the English language, German or French would be a bonus.
- Someone who can work under pressure
- Someone who can pick a tune on a guitar. You don’t have to be John Mayer, but in our experience it does help to translate the wishes and requests of the customer into the setup of a guitar if you can strum a few chords.
