Tonetech Launch the all new Luthier Directory

Tonetech Launch the all new Luthier Directory

Luthier Directory Logo
 

Tonetech has provided a free of charge luthier directory, mainly aimed at UK luthiers, for the last 6 years.  The site was a bit tired and hard to update. 

We've invested in a new great looking directory which allows the luthiers to manage their own entry.  You can change the images, re-word the text, change address and contact details, to suit your changing circumstances.

How do you get a free entry?

First apply for a TonetchPro account.  Once this has been approved we shall email you access to the directory where you can load your profile.  If you'd rather we do this for you, email a couple of great images, one of which should be landscape in the proportion 375 x 195.  Let us have some about you blurb, contact details and we'll create your listing.

The directory is also open to luthiers around Europe.  We'll create new category countries so your local customer can find you.

provided some useful insights into the impact of ever tightening controls on guitar makers
