Complete Guitar Building Course


Over the course of 15 sessions, guitar builder Martin Harmer will take you through every

step of making your very own electric guitar. A tulipwood body, maple neck, maple, ebony or indian rosewood

fretboard and hardware are provided as standard in the price, while other wood options (such

as ash, alder and sapele) and alternative hardware are available on request at an increased

price. You’ll have the benefit of learning alongside three other people in a group

environment, this course running for groups of four.

From woodworking to installing hardware and winding your own pickups, you’ll learn all the

skills required to build guitars from start to finish, all under expert guidance and working

from a full-scale technical drawing containing the required measurements. And, of course,

you’ll go home with your new, self-made guitar!

⋅ Understand how an electric guitar is constructed

⋅ Have hands-on experience of every stage in the guitar building process

⋅ Have a foundation in all the skills needed to build a guitar
