The small group workshops are presently held several times a year. Each workshop is taught in a small group setting, usually four or five students. This is a 7-day workshop for the completion of an Archtop guitar from start to finish. All wood, materials, and parts are included. Only a six-string Archtop guitar with a 17" X 3" body will be offered. All workshops are held in Nazareth, Pennsylvania at the Nazareth Guitar Institute.
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!”

“It’s really one of the best things I’ve ever been a part of. I had such a great time and I’m very turned on by the whole process and will continue to pursue this as a hobby.”
