Guitar Making & Repair

Our Spring 2021 Guitar Making & Repair Class has started to carve their acoustic braces and electric guitar necks. They’re fitting their acoustic backs to their frames. Plus, they’re routing neck pockets and cavities in their electrics. They’ve also received their first round of grades. Our Guitar Repair (10 Week Intensive) Class is busy with fretwork, set-ups and so much more… We’re definitely in the thick of it now.
