On our one-year course, you’ll learn how to construct a guitar of your chosen model and design from scratch, directly from one of the most respected luthiers in the business. You’ll learn how to sharpen and use traditional hand-tools and as well as taking home a high quality handbuilt instrument, you’ll develop an in depth understanding of how guitars work and what to look for when purchasing instruments.
All materials for construction – including tonewoods and machineheads – are included in the price.
