I have recently graduated from high school and am thinking about becoming a luthier. I have read that it probably wont pay well, but I don't care. I would really like to learn how to make and repair stringed instruments, both electric and acoustic. So what I'm getting at here is, how would I do this. Would I apprentice? Or take a course somewhere and learn how with a group of people? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Ibanez RGD7421
Blackstar HT-100
Avatar Vintage w/ 2 Governors and 2 Swamp Thangs
