Build Your Own Guitar

Joe Slack, Guitar Builder, also offers classes on how to build your own guitar through the Homestead Heritage School of Woodworking! Start with either a week-long class building your guitar from a high-quality kit, or spend a few weeks building your guitar entirely from scratch. Either way, both classes end with you taking home your own hand-made guitar! Class tuition cost includes a hard-shell, plush lined guitar case.

You can read a blog article that includes a testimonial from one of our actual guitar class students here: Making a Dreadnought Guitar .
