I/m seriously considering moving my guitar/violin business to the austin area, but don/t know if there is really a need for my services. I build guitars/ukes and repair guitars and violin family instruments..We are planning a visit in jan of 2014. We went to N . houston suburbs last jan , and were impressed with the greenery. But since we both had bad colds we never checked out the work opportunities. There is very little interest in guitars in our area . We are both wanting to live in a warmer climate .Thanks

Austin already has a lot of good luthiers, guitar builders, and repair guys, both acoustic and electric and several violin guys too. Mark Erlewine and Collings Guitars and Schaefer Guitars all come to mind, and I don't know who else has come to the fore since I lived there.

It's not so much a matter of whether there is any need for your services as it is how will you fare against the known and established competition in a busy music town?

Spend some time online checking out what's what, and then visit some of them while you're there in January to check things out.

Good luck!
