Course Description

This is your chance to build the guitar of your dreams. Working under the expert direction of master luthier Ross Hill, with over 50 years of world-renowned experience, you have the choice of building your very own classical guitar or electric guitar.

You will learn foundational skills in instrument making and assembly along with the opportunity to custom finish your instrument.

Your instrument may become your gateway to the concert stage, a career in instrument building, or a cherished, personal treasure played for your own pleasure.
