The “Guitar Building Methods 2” class is a unique opportunity to build your own guitar building jigs and fixtures. After completing the fixtures, students will use them to make actual guitar parts. This class provides a rare opportunity to learn lutherie methods that are typically only learned through a hard-to-come-by luthier apprenticeship. This second methods class will focus on jigs and fixtures for making guitar necks, fingerboards and bridges. Students will build the three different neck routing jigs as well as a fixture to hold the neck for carving. Once the jigs are completed, each student will carve their own acoustic guitar neck from raw stock. John will also demonstrate various methods for making and slotting fingerboards and bridges. Participants will also learn the mathematical formulas for laying out the frets for any stringed musical instrument.
