 Acoustic Corner

 

 

Open immediately, a position repairing instruments at Acoustic Corner.  A small family owned music shop in Black Mountain, North Carolina.  Applicants should be ready to perform repairs on a variety of fretted instruments.  Looking for a graduate of at least the first year of the guitar program.  Applicants should also be willing to learn routine repairs on violin family instruments.

 

The job allows a flexible schedule from 30-35 hours per week, and pay starts at $13/hr, with raises expected after training.

 

My name is Matthew Hannafin, and I am a class of 2011 Red Wing student, and will be overlapping with the applicant to familiarize them with shop procedures and day to day operations.  There are brief moments where the job requires one to help in the show floor, which is something the team at Acoustic Corner will help to teach as well.

 

The shop website is www.acoustic-corner.com, and if interested please contact me at matthannafin@gmail.com, or call at (828) 275-6714.

 

There are many instruments that walk through the door at this shop for repairs.  In the three years I've been here, I've reset necks on vintage Martins, performed many refrets, and all around enjoyed having different things to work on each day.

 

Cheers!
