ASIA is dedicated to our members’ educational needs.

Always Learning at ASIA

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 news and reviews online. The reviews are a members-only perk.

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.

“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
