ArtofManliness.com has a series called “So You Want My Job” where they profile men who are in interesting or desirable jobs. A few years ago, they profiled Jason Stoltzfus, who is a touring guitar technician based out of Nashville. In the interview, Jason talks about how he got the job and what it’s like to live on a tour bus for most of the year. He also talks about his favorite part of the job:
I would have to say the best part is the travel. I love traveling, and this job allows me to see the country and world. I’ve been to all 50 states, Mexico, and Canada in the short year and a half I’ve been touring. That’s a really unique opportunity, to get paid to see the world and play shows in the meantime. There are a lot of great perks about the job, but that’s the best.
It’s interesting to read about what it’s like to be a guitar tech. It sounds like a lot of fun.
