ELECTRIC JUNK GUITAR
Saturday, February 5, 2011 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM (EST)
Brooklyn, United States
Learn to make a primitive one- or two-string guitar, wind your own
pickups, and rock out! In this class, you'll turn a piece of scrap
wood into a simple electric guitar. All materials are supplied except
the wood - please bring a sturdy 2-3 foot length of scrap wood such as
a pine 1x2 (or heavier), a broomstick, or even a nice strong straight
branch from a fallen tree. You'll learn the basic acoustics and
electromagnetics behind electric guitars. The class involves light
use of hand and power tools, and soldering - no soldering experience
$75 + $5 materials
This class is taught by NYC Resistor member Ranjit Bhatnagar as part
of his Noisy Noises project, in which he spends every February making
a new primitive musical instrument each day.
All NYC Resistor classes are for people 18-years and up. Sorry, minors.
