ASIA is dedicated to our members’ educational needs.
A significant part of ASIA's mission is to continually increase the level of professionalism within the craft by publishing useful and informative articles on the craft; establishing a database of resources, skills, supplies, and technical information; and offering symposia, workshops, and seminars.
In addition to the quarterly Guitarmaker Magazine, ASIA publishes articles online. Some are available to the public, while others are members-only. In addition to articles written specifically for the website, we will begin publishing content here from issues of Guitarmaker Magazine that have long been out of print.
At ASIA's biennial symposium, guitar builders and players of all skill levels gather to learn, teach, and play guitar. It is also a great place to see, try, and buy traditional to modern jigs and tools, and select the choicest guitar wood from the myriad vendors who attend. ASIA puts together an incredible program that is sure to increase your skill and pleasure in pursuing luthiery.
