An intensive one day course covering the general maintenance and care of guitars. This includes truss rod adjustments, setting the saddle heights, cutting nut slots to the correct depth, setting pickup clearance, intonation, fret polishing, restringing and cleaning the instrument.
This is a fantastic option for people looking to learn how to keep their own instruments in top playing condition or those builders starting out who don’t have the experience to set-up a finished build in the perfectly playing, saleable condition necessary in the modern market.
Learn these skills in a fully outfitted workshop with an experienced instructor and training assistant guiding you through each and every process. We are there to answer all of your questions and ensure you leave with all of the knowledge needed to repeat the procedures covered on any instrument.
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.
With our studio based in the picturesque rolling fields of Dorset, close to the town of Dorchester, take this opportunity to combine a unique experience with a refreshing holiday.
Guitar parts, hardware, electronics and timber available on request. A Student Questionnaire will be downloadable on purchase. Please fill this in and email it to email@example.com. This questionnaire is simply to tell the instructor of your woodworking experience so that the course can be catered to each student.
