This is a private class with direct one on one instruction. Class dates are flexible and can be scheduled according to individual needs. This is a seven-day workshop in which you can construct an Archtop guitar from start to finish. You will be using all master grade wood and material. You will be instructed in the installation of a floating pickup and electronics.I will apply a professional spray finish and pickup after completion of the course with no additional cost. You can choose between creating a six or seven string Archtop guitar with either a 16" or a 17" body.
A private tour of Martin Guitar Co. will be included in all classes. When you come to the class, we'll provide you with supplies and tools, as well as personally supervise your building. No previous experience is required. At the conclusion of the class, you'll go home with a new archtop guitar, along with the knowledge of how to build more for years to follow.

“I will start by saying I had a some trepidation about committing to the archtop class. At the end I wound up being disappointed that it was over!”
