 Arizona Fine Violins

 

Arizona Fine Violins, located in Mesa, Arizona.  We are looking for a full time violin family luthier/repair person.  AFV is also owned and operated by the same people, with String Emporium, which specialize in the upright bass.  We would like a person adept at basic wood working tools, and maintenance.  This person would be setting up new basses (which we would easily train to do.), and  be responsible for the mundane (easy) repair for our rental feet (violins, violas, cellos and basses).  Just basic stuff, like new bridges (the kids break them!), or an occasional top crack on something that is more easy to repair.  No major, heavy duty (or pressure) restorations.

 

The salary range is $15 an hour, but 40 hours a week, minimum guarantee.  There’s also a great bonus plan that includes commissions and even some repairs that this luthier might want to take on (extra).  We’re a decent family run business, we care about our employees and will train the right person that shows a healthy attitude (work ethic) and we might also help with moving expenses. 

 

If you are just graduating the Red Wing program and you are interested in a good job, please contact us.  If you have the right attitude and skills, we’ll help with the rest that you need to learn and do.
