TTG 250 Build A Guitar Class
This is the fundamental offering of the shop, comprising a thorough exposure to the modern technique of guitar building. Since it presents all the basic theory it is appropriate both for the beginner as well as the old hand who may have acquired obsolete habits in more primitive schools.
The student need have no guitar building experience but should be reasonably familiar with electric guitars and their operation. Regardless of your degree of competency you will be challenged to put forth full effort prior to the completion of the course.
