Dunable Guitars seeking Custom Shop Assembly Specialist/tech

California, Los angeles, 90001 Los angeles USA
Apply Now

Dunable Guitars is looking for a hardworking and experienced guitar/bass assembly technician for our custom shop instruments. One of our long-time assembly techs is leaving and we are in search of the perfect candidate to add to our team of skilled professionals.

We are not looking to train a beginner from the ground up, although we will train as to how we do things, as well as help fill in the blanks for the right person who is more skilled in some of these areas than others. At least two years of experience in a professional shop doing frets, installing electronics and hardware, slotting nuts, and final setup, with meticulous attention to detail. The ideal candidate has either worked in a similar role, or possibly in a repair shop, or QC'd import guitars.

You would have your own bench, and be one of three techs in our final assembly shop, with a weekly quota of guitars, fresh out of the paint shop, to assemble.

We are a small company of fewer than ten people, and we work hard, but we also have fun.

Our shop is located in Bell Gardens, just southeast of downtown Los Angeles.


NOTE: if you have more experience in one of these areas than others, we can work with that! Please feel free to note that when applying.

-Receive guitars from paint shop, pull parts according to build sheet. Mind parts stock levels, notify purchasing when reorders are necessary, well in advance.

-Dress frets according to our method, taking proper measures to not damage guitar's finish. Must be acutely knowledgable on proper fret dressing and polishing with no scratches.

- Shield cavities, pickguards, install electronics

- Install hardware safely to not damage guitar and its finish (again, we have procedures to follow which prevent these risks)

- Fit and install nut, properly cut slots as well as bridge slots if necessary

- final setup

Other occasional/minor responsibilities:

receiving packages when they come in, keeping parts shelves neat and organized.

updating build status in our computer system

occasional warranty repairs as they come in

Skills, Experience and Education:

Relevant industry experience (see above)

Any other skills and experience in instrument manufacturing are definitely a plus - feel free to let us know!


must have transportation and available 40 hours a week, occasionally more when necessary (very occasionally, don't worry)

Pay will be dependent on experience and qualifications, but pay is competitive. Medical/401k are available if you need.
