Website Update

Welcome to the fresh new site for ASIA, the Association of Stringed Instrument Artisans. If you're looking for, you are in the right place, just click the Guitarmaker Magazine link in the left menu.

Many people know Guitarmaker Magazine, the journal of ASIA. But ASIA is much more than a magazine. We host a biennial symposium, help builders market their instruments, and help luthiers, players, and collectors learn more about stringed instruments. This site will give you access to the full scope of ASIA including Guitarmaker Magazine. While some information is available to all, some parts of the site are available only to subscribing members.

This site is still wet behind the ears, and things may move around as we try to optimize your experience. Things might be broken, too... Don't hesitate to send us a message via the contact us link if you have suggestions, comments, or questions.

“ASIA is an organization where you not only grow your skills, but grow your extended family. I have met so many wonderful, knowledgeable people through this organization.” ~Michael Dickinson, Martin Guitar
