Overview

Come join us for a workshop where we’ll teach you the art of guitar building. Our staff has a combined 75 years experience in instrument design and manufacturing. This is a recreational approach to a truly unique Nashville experience in the heart of Music City at our studio in Historic Germantown. Join us for the full 8-hour workshop where you build the guitar from start to finish and take home the same day, or attend our finishing workshop where you create the finish, choose the hardware and we'll assemble it. The finishing workshop is 2.5 hours and once assembled we'll ship direct to you. No previous woodworking experience is needed nor do you have to know how to play guitar. Bring nothing but comfortable “working” clothes and a pair of closed toed shoes, we provide all tools and safety gear. The cost is $650. Reserve now for $20 (Balance payable day of workshop.) Join us for the day and leave with your hand built guitar, a gig bag, and a certificate of completion.

The guitar I built is so cool! You might expect for the price of the class the guitar world be cheaply made but not at all! All the people working were pleasant to be around and it was over all an awesome trip.
