Wasn't sure if this should go here or in the luthier thread, so mods please move this if it's in the wrong place. Anyways, I got my hopes up to start a career in building guitar amps. (preferably tube) I even have the Ca department of rehabilitation (a state funded program dedicated to helping disabled people find work and/or job training) backing me up on doing what I have to do to get the training I need and then finding a pre-existing company to join (probably Mesa-boogie) They want me to research all that I can about what it takes to get into this line of work and google isn't helping me much. The closest I found for schooling is Musician's Institute's Guitar Craft courses, but that's mainly for building guitars. I'm more interested in building amps. (I live 70 miles north of Los Angeles btw) Also my google-fu has come up short on what places like Mesa Boogie are looking for in employees. So what do you gotta do to go from complete n00b to master amp builder for a respected company? Any advice at all would be a big help to me. I gotta have some answers for those rehab people by around Dec-Jan, and I wanna go in there with knowledge and not just pipe dreams if you get what I mean.
