Burton Legeyt started building guitars without any formal training or apprenticeship.  Instead he came to guitarbuilding through painting, picture framing, metal working and vintage watchmaking equipment.

Ervin Somogyi is often referred to as the luthier's luthier: His guitars are among the most well-known and sought after custom instruments being made today. Ervin has influenced the custom guitar world, not with his own guitars, but also by training some of today's top builders and by authoring his two-book series the Responsive Guitar.
