We are excited to announce the 2022 Next Great Builder Competition. We are looking for the next up and coming builders and those that are looking for an opportunity to become an apprentice to a master luthier. We want you to send in pictures of you build and if selected you can send your guitar to Baxter and Jonathan for a demo and review on the YouTube channel. The Finalists will get to have their guitars into the hands of our Master Luthier Judges for an opportunity to get hired on as a full time apprentice at the builders workshop. We will be posting the videos from YouTube on this page so bookmark and visit this page often. 

What we are looking for: We want to see builds in the Tele and Strat Style, LP Style and any other original design category. If you build acoustics we would also love to see them as well! 

You can submit through the link below or send your email to with the title Next Great Builder in the heading. Submissions will end on FEB 28th.  You can submit pictures or a video of your guitar with some details about the build process and the specs. 

Let's see those guitar builds!!
