About this event

Come join us for a workshop where we’ll teach you the art of guitar building. Our staff has a combined 75 years experience in instrument design and manufacturing.

This is a recreational approach to a truly unique Nashville experience in the heart of Music City at our studio in Historic Germantown.

Join us for the full workshop (up to 8 hours) where you build the guitar from start to finish and take home the same day, or attend our finishing workshop where you create the finish, choose the hardware and we'll assemble it. The finishing workshop is 2.5 hours and once assembled we'll ship direct to you.

No previous woodworking experience is needed nor do you have to know how to play guitar. Bring nothing but comfortable “working” clothes and a pair of closed toed shoes, we provide all tools and safety gear. The cost is $650 plus tax (9.25%). Reserve now for $50 (Balance payable day of workshop.) Join us for the day and leave with your hand built guitar. The full workshop starts at 9 am (lunch included), and the finishing workshop runs from 9:30 am to 12:00 pm

Cancellations and Exchanges can be made, prior to 7 days of class date. After that, there is no refund on the deposit. We are a small business and have limited class spots. Let us know if you can't make it, so we can open that spot for another student.

About the organizer

Guitar Build Workshop offers a recreational approach to the craftsmanship of guitar building.  Participants will build an electric guitar in 8 hours, and take home their guitar that day. Starting with a custom body designed for this workshop, students will learn the techniques to complete a finished guitar. Steps include, demonstration on how the body is made, sanding, finishing, neck construction, fret leveling/polishing, installing hardware/neck/strings, final set-up and jam session.

Guitar Build Workshop was started by several members of guitar manufacturing industry who wanted to share their talents with individuals who are interested in guitar building, but without the commitment or expense of a formal training program. Staff members have over 75 years combined experience manufacturing guitars.
