February 2003 Meeting

Rick Turner Presented the 2003 Master's Seminar

On February 22, 2003 LINT sponsored an all day seminar by the Leonardo de Vinci of modern guitar making, Rick Turner. The seminar was held at Ed Schaefer's shop in Fort Worth beginning at 9:00am and lasted until until late in the afternoon.


Rick shared information about design and structure of instruments, amplification of instruments, pickup theory and design., and general building tips gained from over 30 years of experience.  Rick has been involved in the business since the early 60's. He also discussed guitar design, new developments in guitar electronics and small shop production techniques. If you have a question about guitar building, Rick can answer it.

This was a rare opportunity to learn from one of the true American Master Luthiers. 

The Fee for this seminar was $50 for members and $75 for non members.
