Making your own acoustic guitar can be one of the most rewarding crafts. Precise joinery, creativity and music will all be rolled into this package. The class will be guided through all the critical elements of creating a steel string parlor guitar. Solid woods and high grade quality materials will be provided. Some prefabricated parts will be provided due to time limitations. Students will learn the complete process and art of acoustic guitar construction. By the end of the seven days, students will have completed their own hand crafted, strung and fully playable parlor guitar. Various protective finish options will be discussed. Students should have experience in correctly using hand tools such as chisels, hand planes and saws. This class will be a chance in a lifetime for participants to make their very own guitar that they’ve always dreamed of. The hours will be long and the challenge great, but the reward will be the creation of tremendous “sound” memories that will last a lifetime.
