Guitar making course 2019


It was a pleasure to host these three chaps for my autumn one month guitar making course and what a set of guitars they were. The quality across the board was exremely high. Andrew returned for a second build and produced an exquisite Lacewing model in cedar and Indian rosewood inspired by the visual work of Michi Matsuda. The other two were both walnuts with cedar and sitka spruce.  The cutaway was made by a Jazz player who teaches music at degree level. We built something to contrast nicely with his two old Martin D’s but to give him warmth and interest for his Jazz playing which is predominantly with a pick. The third guitar was a beautiful Celtic fingerpicker in U.K. Walnut and cedar. Well done everyone, was a great group and really enjoyable month.
