Unique Hands-On Experience
The process of building a guitar begins with the student choosing the raw materials with which he/she will be working (exotic woods, glues, mother of pearl inlay, etc.) and continues by immersing the student in the joys and (sometimes) trials of real-life wood-working, developing skills and problem solving techniques along the way.
This approach emphasizes hands-on experience-- those without prior shop or wood working skills are welcome.
