GAL History

Take Our Quiz – Guess the Luthiers!

The Guild’s 7th Convention/Exhibition in 1980 was a big milestone in GAL history and the history of modern lutherie. The luthiers pictured here attended and got their luthier mug shots! Just look at how young and hip they are! Some were on the verge of becoming big names in the lutherie world, others you may know from the pages of American Lutherie. How many can you name? Email us your answers (with numbers) on our contact form and put MUG SHOTS in the subject. Whoever gets the most correct will win bragging rights and a prize (to be determined)!
