Hello all! This is a short post to tell you about an upcoming Guitar Building Class that will be offered through Maplewood Center for Common Craft

It is an “intensive” class that will be offered September 5th-December 19 2017.  The class will be held on Tuesdays from 5:30-9:00.

Here is part of the write-up for the class from the Maplewood website….

“Drawing from over 30 years of fine instrument making, Martin Macica will share his knowledge of the principles and practice of guitar making, leading participants through the process of making their own guitar using hand tools.   This intensive course will cover every aspect of guitar making, including the important hand-cut dovetail neck joint.   Participants will leave with a working knowledge of guitar making, and a handcrafted instrument ready for a lifetime of making music.”

The cost for the workshop and materials will be an estimated $1375, including all materials.  Price may vary slightly based on the number of participants.
