This past week I hosted a student from Saint Louis in my shop for a one on one classical guitar building class. In 8 days we built this beautiful classical guitar.
For you electric guitar fans...
I recently filmed what will become an online electric guitar building course in my shop with luthier Mike Snider of Snider Guitars. Over 10 days Mike and I worked 15 hours a day to design, build, finish and setup two electric guitar styles: A carved top Les Paul type configuration and a traditional Tele type guitar. In the course Mike shows it all, even how to wind your own pickups and inlay fretboards and headstocks. He is a true master at what he does and the information he offers in the course is top notch. I hope to have the footage edited and available by the end of the year. Here is a quick video about the course.
Recently while in Brazil I recorded Brazilian composer and guitarist, Euclides Marques, performing on one of my seven string classical guitars. Here is a video of the session.
Remember that I have a ton of free information and videos as well as my online guitar building courses available on my website. Recently while in Brazil I recorded Brazilian composer and guitars, Euclides Marques, performing on one of my seven string classical guitars.
