Julien Sublet:

Luthier and passionate.

Becoming a guitar maker has been a life long goal of mine. Ever since my childhood I have been fascinated by the guitar. This musical instrument spoke to me and as years go by, I want to learn more about the way it works and discover its soul.

This passion of mine has been a long time in the making. In fact, I was seven years old when I first met the guitar. I have grow up always having a guitar by my side. From this deep seeded interest came an urge to find out how and why a guitar becomes a guitar.

I was born in Geneva, Switzerland and soon after moved to Peron, a small town located in eastern France. After a earning my baccalauréat in literature, I studied to become a cabinet maker in Geneva. This experience gave me the opportunity to improve my woodworking skills and taught me that wood is a living material.

 

After becoming a certified cabinet maker I decided to follow my passion. I enrolled in the National Luthiery school located in Quebec City. There was much for me to discover in Canada while I studied at one of the most state-of-the-art facilities for guitar making in North America. During my 3 year program,  I learned how to fabricate and build  guitars that allowed me to turn fantasies into realities while using the rules of acoustic building. I have taken many courses that have enabled me to develop my own design and aesthetic lines.

Today, I want to use my knowledge and skills to give musicians the ability to discover their potential and the possibilities of their instrument. Throughout this journey, I want to keep on learning and marveling at the boundless possibilities of the guitar.
