So I've been in a school for about a year now, getting all the credits blah blah blah, I'm trying to become a guitar luthier. So my wife is also a guitarist but I play metal, she plays rock. The other day she bought a new guitar and I got her some EMG's as a present. No big deal right?

Here's where it gets awkward, disturbing, and downright creepy. We've been married for about 9 months, and the usual talk about having a kid is comes up every once in a while, we decided we didn't want any because that's 18 years we lose. So last night she's installing the pickups right? She usually just cuts the wires and rips the pickup out because we usually rewire our new guitars.

She asks me to hold a couple wires and suddenly out of nowhere, while snipping the wires says, "Haha hey Babe, it's like I'm giving this guitar a vasectomy."

I was so disturbed by this, I spent the remainder of the night cuddling my boys in the bathroom.

Anybody else have any interesting tales of a similar manner that disturbed you very much?

You don't become a luthier by screwing around with guitars, if you want to be a certified luthier you have to take classes, kind of like college.

I feel like she's trying to tell you something.


If she is she's either saying she's going to ruin the wiring in my guitar or ruin the wiring in my manhood!

So your wife made a joke about a vasectomy, and you wrote a 1000+ word post about it?

Such institutions have proper names I believe, calling it a "school" is quite disrespectful I reckon

If a subject involves a mans (specifically my) nuts getting butchered, I believe it's worthy of 1000+ words.

Well where I'm from, I believe I was branded a douchebag.

Yep, because a vasectomy is exactly that: butchering your nuts. That's not a terrible exaggeration at all.

If only it were as easy as snipping some internal tubing...

A vasectomy is not even a big deal. You should totally get one if you're not gonna have kids.


It is if your wife gives it to ya!

the best guitar luthier in my town (~50,000, plus we get alot from a much larger ~300,000 town) got to be as good as he by just screwing around with guitars...When he says something..its gospel...

point being, you don't need schooling for guitar work.

Drop the npick i side an acoustic guitar, take it out with a coathanger whilst saying babe it's like I'm performing an abortion on the guitar"..


Stupid abortion jokes..

Naw, but it sure looks good on your resume. A luthier with some "schooling experience" will look much better than someone saying they've been repairing and crafting for 15 years, unless of course in your case, the luthier is very well known.

Not to mention you could get a higher pay.
