A luthier (/ˈluːtiər/ LOO-ti-ər) is someone who builds or repairs string instruments generally consisting of a neck and a sound box.
The word "luthier" comes from the French word luth, which means lute, a primitive stringed instrument.
Hello, my name Hans Boye Boyesen and I am a luthier.
Most folks may not know exactly what that is.
It means I am a guitar builder and certified repair and restoration technician.
I attended the acclaimed Galloup School of Lutherie and Guitar Repair in Big Rapids, Michigan where I received my training and certification.
I have been finding and “healing” guitars since I was a kid.
After having had the privilege of meeting Les Paul when I
was only nine, I developed a further passion to pursue playing
and learning about guitars and other fine fretted instruments.
I had the privilege to spend some time with Les on his 80th
Let me also add that I am an artist, woodcarver, songwriter,
musician and... a die-a hard lover of stringed instruments...
favoring the fretted breed and sometimes fretless too.
Welcome to my shop and I hope to be of assistance to you by providing
top notch services which include the repair, restoration and building of
fine acoustic and solid body instruments...
