Tips for your first guitar building course!

Based on my experience of my two guitar building courses, I have compiled some tips on how to approach your first guitar build with a luthier.  This is based on a course where you have a limited time for your build, such as a week, which may force you to make some compromises.

There is also a second page discussing some design considerations and their complexity and amount of time required.  You probably won’t be able to include all possible elements, so it’s worth thinking about which ones to include in your first build.

I hope that these pages will be useful!

I grew up in England, attending school in Gloucester and then reading Classics at Peterhouse, Cambridge University. After working in London for three years, I moved to Belgium in 1993 where I have lived ever since. I played the piano as a child and also started playing the guitar, but never took it seriously until 2012, thanks to Rocksmith. I've also done a lot of singing, including over 30 amateur shows. Since 2012 I have been avidly accumulating guitar-related information as well as guitars and related gear, and I decided to create this site to share some of my knowledge, experiences and opinions with anybody who might be interested.
