A step by step guide to making a set neck electric guitar with virtually unlimited scope for customization. Welcome to ‘Build Your Own Guitar’ Inside is a complete step by step video for building your very own first (or best yet) guitar. I will guide you through the entire process starting with making your own set of patterns – these are among the many secret ‘tricks of the trade’ that enable you to make high quality instruments – faster and easier. I will show you how to use your patterns to make one or a hundred guitars!
This course also includes my ebook on Tools and quick-start pages:
– Tools for your first guitar
– Wood and Parts for your first guitar
How hard can it be?
There are about 50-60 jobs to make a guitar – each one should take 10-20 minutes on average – it takes a certain level of commitment… and yes, it can be hard work. If you want to be a guitar maker (or just make one for yourself) then I truly believe this is the best possible start you could get – short of actually working in a guitar workshop.
What’s in it for me?
Over eight hours of video – this course is the final product of many years of building guitars, running courses and writing to create a real and accurate instruction manual.
16 years of experience teaching over 400 student to build has taught me a lot:
– how to break the process down into easy chunks
– the right tools for the right job
– the best order to do them in for best results
– the most efficient way of doing each job – saving time and wasted effort
