Shad,
bad things happen to good people. Life throws us a curve and it seems like the end of an era. Believe me, it is not.
I heard about the fire. It really sucks and I know right now you feel like calling it quits. You can't quit! You are so lucky that you have found your true calling. When you love what you do for a living it is not work. It is daily joy that you share with people who pay you for your God given talent.
There are plenty of luthiers out there who make average guitars. Yours are NOT average Shad. They are incredible pieces of artwork that give enormous amounts of joy to those lucky enough to own one of your masterpieces. The joy you received while crafting a guitar is passed through the owner who plays it and on to the numerous people who get to listen to the music. Dom't deny the joy you have created for yourself, guitar owners and music enthusiasts.
If you were an average luthier I would not bother to get involved in what you do. You make the best damn guitars on the planet. You know it and I know it.
Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and figure out a game plan to get back to what you do best. It won't be easy but it will be well worth the effort you put forth. You can do this.

Hi Shad. Your guest book is a neat idea for any business website. I am impressed! It would be awesome to see where all our site hitters are from. Thus I need to say We are in Morral, Ohio.

Ive always enjoyed seeing the workings of Luthiers, since 1960s when a friend of mine built his own electric guitar, and very good engraving.
