Course Base Price £1299 (set/bolt on neck) £1499 for Thru Neck

includes all standard materials

We have a limited number of workshop places every year, and it varies according to the type of guitars being built – the fee reserves one of those places for 2020 (and beyond if needed) and together we agree dates, spec and estimated costs. These build courses are intended to be flexible to accommodate as many different builders and their availability. There are 2 opportunites to come and build over a week, or spread your build over 2 or more visits (weekends or weekdays)

This Booking fee is non returnable should you change your mind and decide not to come(but you keep the merchandise etc). We will ask for a deposit of at least 25% to turn the reservation into a firm booking – at least a month before the course starts or when it is fully booked, and the full balance (plus any upgrades) is payable before the end of the course. Payments can be made in regular installments or lumps, by a variety of methods – please ask for more info
