On the 6 string electric guitar making course you will build a guitar from a ready made kit.
I will be there to help with the following :-
Neck setting, fret levelling, truss rod adjustment, string height and action, electric wires, wood finishing etc etc.
This course is aimed at people with no experience with guitars or woodwork . At the end of the day you will take your new guitar home to enjoy. In our very friendly workshop we have all the tools necessary for you to complete the build in 7.5 hours plus 30 mins for lunch.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

Great fun and really interesting. Ted has a great knowledge of guitars and is full of tips and advice for newbies like me and lots of stories from when he was in bands.
Also, if he suggests getting a pie from the local pie shop, you say yes! Yum
All in all well worth the two and a half hour drive. Might go back for a strumstick!
Thanks Ted

We had a thoroughly enjoyable day with Ted. He is a highly personable tutor with great skill, knowledge and patience. I am now looking forward to stripping the guitar back to component form and adding a colourful design finish to the woodwork, comfortable in the knowledge that I can rebuild it without too much trouble.
Highly recommended!

Response from Teds Woodworking/ instrument making Courses:

James asked lots of questions about the technical issues involved in guitar building and he was able to do most of the work himself. Well done James I hope you can come back soon for another woodworking course. Thanks again and kind regards Ted.

Great course. Very interesting to see guitar being put together stage by stage. Ted explained everything clearly and paid great attention to detail. I found the day very enjoyable and can recommend the course to anyone who has an interest in electric guitars. Ted is also an excellent player and shows you what can be achieved on your creation. He is also an all round good bloke!

Had a great day building a kit guitar with Ted. He's a knowledgable teacher and I enjoyed the chat through the day. Also plenty of tea on hand which is always a bonus.
I'll be returning to do another course with him asap.

Response from Teds Woodworking/ instrument making Courses:
