The EGB is an alliance formed by professional independent European luthiers.
We are dedicated to support each other by sharing knowledge, resources, and experience in order to preserve and innovate the art and craft of guitar building in Europe as a vital part of our musical culture.
The European Guitar Builders Association (EGB) was founded with the goal of organizing the independent luthiers as well as people related to the field of guitar building all across Europe.
The tradition of lutherie is a rich legacy. Methods tempered, and knowledge accumulated over centuries. We want to preserve this, but also carry it forward, expand it through innovation and the exchange of ideas and culture. We want to foster a sense of community among practitioners of our craft. Most builders are faced with similar problems and challenges. There is enormous potential in joining and helping each other, sharing experiences, cooperating and advancing the craft in a spirit of amity.
