Build a Guitar from Scratch (17-day)

Build a Guitar from Scratch in 17 Days for $3,200.00.

Starting with roughly dimensioned wood, each student will shape the neck, bridge and internal bracing of the guitar using simple hand tools. You will bend the guitar’s sides by hand and install the sound hole rosette. You will also learn how to set the guitar’s playability by shaping the nut and saddle and setting the proper neck relief. Each student will leave with a great sounding, easy  playing guitar that they made themselves. All guitars leave the shop ready to be finished at home using simple instructions we provide. Also included in the tuition cost is a hard-shell, plush-lined case. Specify Martin, Dreadnaught or OM body style and choice of tonewoods.

In order to secure your place in a class, we must receive your full registration fee for any class costing less than $1,000.00. For classes costing $1,000.00 or more, fifty percent of the registration fee is due when you register, and the remaining balance is due 30 days prior to your class date and will be charged to the same card you used to register for this class.

Note: We schedule this class the second week of each month from January through October. (The class runs for almost three weeks.) You’ll need to register at least two weeks prior to your class in order for us to get the wood and materials and have them climatized in time for your workshop.

For more information or to register for a class, call Joe Slack at (254) 715-6602.

Note: Since our workshops are specifically designed for adults, an individual must be 18 years old to enroll in a class. All students should wear practical work clothes and shoes. For your safety, we ask that you do not wear shorts or sandals to a class you are attending.

All our classes close 24 hours before the class date with the exception of classes that start on Monday, which will close the Friday before. If there's a class that closed early that you'd like to attend, please call us at 254-754-9620 to check for availability.
