I work alone in my workshop and I offer a one on one tuition on learning how to build an acoustic guitar. With my guidance through the process you’ll get to enjoy the experience of making your own instrument that is perfectly suited to your playing style.
I want you to build an instrument which reflects your tastes and personality. There’s a lot of scope for choosing materials and customising the design of your instrument.
The timbers used will give the instrument its unique look and sound. We’ll discuss the materials with you before the course begins and explain the characteristics of each timber so you can make an informed decision about what to use on your guitar.
You can choose from the following models of acoustic guitar and customise your instrument to make it truly unique.
Parlour, OM, Small Jumbo or Dreadnought
I provide a thorough grounding in guitar making theory and techniques during the course. You will leave understanding how a guitar works, how it is made, what makes it sound good and how you can go on to set up your own workshop and build more instruments.
The course costs 3.000€ including all materials and a selection of machine heads. Other hardware, cases and expensive/decorative timbers can be purchased at extra cost.
Courses are held twice a year on the beginning of July and September and its lenght is two weeks. Don’t hesitate to contact me for further details and availability.
