Our Spring Class of 2021 has turned in their electric guitars for grading and the acoustics are finishing up soon. We’ve got a great mix of traditional and modern designs happening, and these folks are really doing great work! Here are just a few examples of the electrics, but you can check out what’s happening on a daily basis by visiting our Instagram and Facebook pages. We will eventually post all of the electric and acoustic guitars, from our Spring 2021 Class, in our Student Galleries. Photos by R-V instructor Steven Davis.

A Special “Shout Out” to our very own John Reuter (R-V’s Director of Training) on the completion of a brand new Garcia Wolf Guitar. He’s got several more guitars in progress, and it’s good to see him building these electrics again!
