Really? Wow I never knew that.


Go be a dick else where, kthxbye


...you asked what it is and people told you.

..unless you're reffering to a specific post, then yes, people can be dicks.
but people expect you to at least give it a quick search in google or wikipedia before starting a thread. Most users on here are really knowledgeable and glad to help, but noone's really impressed when someone clearly hasn't done a quick search on it..

That's the thing, as odd as it may sound I looked it up, and I didn't find anything.

I honestly thought a luthier was some kind of like adhesive or something hell if I know.


As for the "Go be a dick elsewhere" thing that was to Zeds.ded

UG is a friendly forum you don't need be sarcastic.

Google + Luthier gives me this. If you honestly could not find that, you shouldn't be on the internet alone.

I can help you get really smart, just email me your name, adress, all your credit card numbers, and your social insurance.

(I'm kidding.)

Ignorance is never a good excuse.

Seriously man, I know you are just trying to figure stuff out, and thats great. Take some of your time to find these things first, instead of taking ours.

You have not made a single thread that couldn't be answered with Google, that I cant think of, and that is really starting to piss me off.

Sure, we are a friendly forum, but we are also a mature forum. A part of maturity is being independent and having common sense, maybe you should try it.

If you had done a search on google, you would have found out that the info people are giving you here is not the full story.

A luthier is not someone who just makes guitars, but someone who makes or repairs stringed instruments.

I know this one wasn't too smart, and I was being fairly lazy, I won't deny that, but as for every other post I've checked for I simply couldn't find an answer.

All that theory my guitar teacher tries to drill into my head just gets buried under piles of porn and I never manage to apply any of it

Find a woodworking shop. They cut wood too .

For example, I'll be getting my body cut at a cabinet maker this weekend.

I am a luthier and I only build acoustic guitars and am not interested in building electrics.

As far as the question of what is a luthier..... You would be surprised at the number of people that I hand my business card to, after telling them that I build guitars for a living, and THEN they ask me what a luthier is....

I hear that question on almost a daily basis, and from some highly educated people who have never heard the word before. It is a valid question and some luthiers who only build guitars have begun to change their "title" over to "Guitar Builder" instead.
#19
actually, a luthier is anyone who makes any kind of stringed instrument not just guitars. it dates back to people who built lutes - hence the name luthier. it can be used to describe hollow body acoustics or electric instruments but the use of the word is selective. I've built electric guitars - am I a luthier? probably not... if I built an acoustic would I be a luthier? probably not... if I'm a master at building either one - am I a luthier? probably.

The problem with titles is they mean nothing to some people and the world to others...

it's like the old phrase "you can work on cars your whole life and you're never a mechanic but suck..." well, you know the rest

hey chris, I don;t think you're wrong in making this thread. These guys are wrong for taking this waaaaaay too seriously. He asked a question, and he got an answer (from some) and some people thought it would be better to essentially call him a dumbass.


Now, a question for them: why else would he come here? what's wrong with asking an obvious question? speaking of maturity, when one of your friends asks a relatively obvious question, do you go "why don't you google it?" or "wow , you're an idiot". And what a great image to give these forums; can't even ask a basic question without getting flamed for every last detail.

There we go. Thank you guys for the positive responses.

nuthinbuttrubl8 may have typed that himself but the first google hit for luthier is wikipedia and it says the exact same thing and goes onto more detail as well.

i dont think the other guys had to be dicks about it but im still with them, next time use google man, you'll get answers that are better, quicker and you wont get responses from people trying to be dicks.

What? You couldn't search "luthier" and click on the first link google had: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luthier
Seriously, you really need to just take 5mins out and search something on google. You have made about 10 topics about stupid questions. I'm really getting tired of your questions, like i've said in another of your topics, Just make one thread and put >>>EVERYTHING<<< you have to ask in it.

^---Honestly, let this die. And if you're getting tired of my questions here's the solution: Get over it. There are newbies all over ultimate-guitar, I admitted that I was lazy when it came to this topic and I didn't google it. But we've established it was stupid of me to do and I understand that, I got the answer I needed and it died.

Just shut up and let the thread be deleted. I know you have a right to be angry with this topic but every other question wasn't stupid, It was a question from someone who had no idea how what he was doing and wanted to be sure I was doing it right.

I'm sorry if I offended you in posting this. If not, then I'm glad.

If i knew how to close this thread I would.
