Does anybody have an idea on which luthier schools are worth the money. They get pretty pricey and fed student aid doesn't apply.

A good friend of mine works for Roger Sadowsky in Brooklyn. I'll ask him. For anyone wondering, Sadowsky makes some of the nicest guitars. They also do top notch set up work and repairs.
