    When do you become a "luthier".

    I would also say that if someone has Luthier qualifications that does not make them a Luthier. I have degrees in Chemistry but I am not a chemist.

    So the person who built the first Lute wasn't a luthier as he wasn't qualified? No qualifications are need to be skillful and be a luthier

    What’s the most overpriced gear ?

    Golf clubs. A decent new driver is £450 and will last 5 years (or 3/4 the amount I play). So I'll play my broken one for another year or two and look again at that Epi-335 "inspired by" @ £550

    Who is playing Wordle? And have you seen Quordle???

    Yeah. I'm in. Better before the NYT started editing the dictionary telling me LYNCH was not a word. Quordle is good too. I love puzzles. My day starts with The Times (UK) puzzles while I have my cuppa tea in bed. I wish I could play guitar as well as I can solve puzzles.
