Instructor: Nicholas Cioni
Dates: 06/09/2017 - 06/11/2017
Time: Fri, 6pm-10pm; Sat-Sun, 9am-5pm
Description: The process of building an acoustic guitar is a great accomplishment for any woodworker! The art of lutherie (instrument making) has been evolving for hundreds of years and this guitar making class is an ideal introduction to the process of building beautiful guitars. It’s easy to get discouraged by the complexity of building an acoustic instrument, but this class will break down the critical process of instrument construction and empower each woodworker to move their skills forward and gain a better understanding of modern instrument building.
All luthiers say that it takes a lifetime to become a master, but this class will be a great benefit even for an experienced instrument maker. Whether you have made several instruments and want to refine your craft or have never built an instrument before, this class will present a functional construction process and focus on the critical points of building a high quality instrument. In addition to constructing the guitar kit, the class will introduce wood bending for instrument sides, top joining, top thicknessing, and basic instrument “voicing.” The class will also cover inlay techniques and address individual concerns on customizing guitars and building from scratch when working from instrument plans for those who plan to build on their own.
Cost: 599.00
Notes: No prerequisites are required. Guitar kit and all materials are included.
Signup deadline: 5/26/2017 (to allow time to order guitar kits)
