Short term course starting in October. This is a 10 day class and is dedicated to "ELECTRIC GUITAR & BASS BUILDING" of course you will learn to fret your guitar, make a nut and wire it. There will be wood options, parts, and finishes to explore. We have three dates in 2008.
We take pride in our strong academic reputation. This course will allow you to complete an Electric Guitar and at the same time make a nut, learn basic fretwork, basic wiring and more.
Areas of Concentration:
Cutting out body,
Routing all cavities,
Routing truss rod cavity,
Sanding body & neck.
Applying an oil finish.
As you can imagine ten day's is not very long. So with that in mind we will be working ten (10) hour day's for the complete ten day's. Enrollment for this course will be very limited and will be on a first come basis. You will gain the basic skills required to build guitar's and will leave with a playing guitar. Keep in mind that we are teaching "YOU" to do the work. So you will want to keep your expectation's and aspirations to a minimum, as your abilities develop and you progress in this field you can then start to build more complicated and detailed instruments. This is a beginners course and will be overwhelming for some, but we will get you through it. I would recommend making a tele or strat style bolt on neck, hard tail guitar or a four or five string Bass Guitar. Remember "YOU" are building the guitar not us. We have parts, supplies, wood and almost everything you will need here at the school for purchase at wholesale prices but you are welcome to bring your own parts, wood etc.. You will not need any tool's, as we supply them here for your use, while attending Luthiers International, but you are welcome to bring your own if you desire.
Tuition for the ten (10) day course is $1250.00 and you should expect to pay approx. $200.00 - $300.00 for wood and parts to complete your gui
