Fancy being a guitar tech? January 27 2015

BUDDING acoustic guitarists are being offered the chance to find out how to have a career in the music industry as a guitar technician this month (January, 2015).

We are offering secondary schools in Nottingham the opportunity to have members of the Dave Mann Music team come in to chat to pupils.

Our director, Walter Mann explained: “These days guitar technicians are a lot more to do with the electrical side of guitars and, while that’s a great way to get into that side of things, for anyone looking to work with acoustic guitars we can offer lots of hints and tips on a career in the industry and bring in instruments to show them.

“Acoustic guitars are just as popular today as they have ever been and there will always be a demand for guitar technicians but it is a bit of a dying art. We would like to help encourage youngsters to view it as a career option if they are interested in the instrument but do not wish to earn a living as a performer.”

We are a leading acoustic guitar dealer with more than 40 years experience in dealing in acoustic instruments.

“Not only are we the experts in this field, we are also extremely passionate about what we do and the instruments we stock.

“We have excellent relationships with all our suppliers and manufacturers and this means we are always offered the first choice on rare, unique and limited edition instruments and are in an excellent position to handle bespoke orders.”

To find out more drop in for a chat at our UK headquarters and store on Mansfield Road in Nottingham or call 0115 941 7955. You can also follow the company on Twitter @davemannmusic1 or like its Facebook page www.facebook.com/DaveMannMusicUK.
