Our January 2018 Guitar Making Course was a rewarding two weeks.
The two students, Darrin and Steve built very different instruments, but both were really fun and challenging.
Darrin built a take on a Tele Cabronita electric guitar. Based on the Tele Thinline, the Cabronita features Filtertron pickups and a clean aesthetic thanks to the absence of a control panel or pickguard. Queensland Maple was used for the body and neck, Ebony for the fingerboard.
Steve built a reproduction of a turn 1900s Parlour Guitar. The finished guitar had an amazing resonance, rivalling that of the original, no easy job with an acoustic guitar with 100+ years of age in its favour. The back, sides and neck are Queensland Maple and the top German Spruce.
