With our one-to-one lessons, students are taken through every intricate part of the guitar making process, from developing the initial design right through to wood selection, construction, side bending, fretting, set up, polishing and of course... playing!
The methods used are predominantly hand-tool based with occasional power-tool use. No previous woodworking experience is necessary. You will be working alongside master luthier Alex Bishop who will help prepare you for every stage of the process.
Materials (wood, strings, hardware etc) are not included in the cost, but these can be provided. Please see the materials price list. Students are also welcome to source their own timber if they wish.
It takes most students around 80 hours to complete their guitar, and students can spread this time out in any way they wish. Slots are available in 2, 3, 4 and 6 hour slots.
