My Crimson guitar build


After building my kit guitar in 2015, I thought it would be interesting to go a stage further and build a guitar from scratch.  I’d seen that a number of luthiers give courses in guitar building, and I decided this year (2016) that I would take a week off work to go and follow one.

I decided to follow a course with Crimson Guitars, since they do a week-long course which is exactly what I want to do.  I’ll be travelling to England for the week and staying near them, and I can visit my parents at the weekends, since they aren’t too far away.

I plan on documenting this guitar build in some detail here, since I know that a number of people will be interested (hi guys!).  This page is the table of contents for the whole build, with links to all of the other pages and YouTube videos etc.

Wish me luck! 🙂
