An intensive 3-day (22.5 hours) Course designed to allow someone with little experience to put together a kit guitar.
Learn these skills in a fully outfitted workshop with an experienced instructor and training assistant guiding you through each and every process. We are here to answer all of your questions and ensure you leave with all of the knowledge needed to repeat the procedures covered.
This Course :
- Day One - Fretwork, level, crown, and polish. Fine sanding. Glue in the neck.
- Day Two - Applying finish, using our range of Water or Spirit-based Stunning Stains.
- Day Three - Oiling the instrument. Assembly. Set-up.
This 22.5-hour course entails 7.5 hours a day with breaks. Your days with us will begin at 9 am with coffee/tea and lunch breaks, and end at 5 pm. There are local shops and pubs within a 10-minute drive of Crimson Guitars though most students bring a packed lunch.
Due to time constraints, custom designs are not available. Inlay or body carves are similarly restricted in order to enable the majority of students to finish their instrument within the timeframe.
The kit guitar is included in the price of the course and the hardware can be purchased through us at an additional cost to the course. You may, however, choose to bring your own hardware, if you wish. Please let us know when you book your course dates to confirm that you will be bringing the correct materials.
Pick from one of our 5 Kit styles:
- 'MF' (LP-type)
