This is a fantastic option for people who want to learn how to keep their own instruments in top playable condition or those builders who don’t yet have the experience to set up a finished build in the perfect condition necessary in today's market.
Learn these skills in a fully outfitted workshop with an experienced instructor and training assistant guiding you through each and every process. By the end of your day at Crimson you will leave with all of the knowledge needed to repeat the procedures on any instrument.
Guitar parts, hardware, electronics, and timber are available to purchase on request.
Your day 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.
