Andy is a high school physics and engineering teacher who has been playing bass and guitar in bands for 30 years.

Course Requirements

The cost of the guitar kit is $250.00 payable to the tutor on the first day. Choose one kit from the choices above and email Andy on andydraper@hotmail.com

Everything to complete your guitar is included and you will be guided through the assembly by an experienced guitar builder who has been working with these instruments for many years. Choose from three classic instrument styles and a wide range of traditional timber stains.

Unlike most cheap instruments you might buy at the local store, these guitars are supplied with solid ash bodies and rock maple necks and fretboards.

Please note, it is not possible to spray solid colours as part of this course, but frankly, the timber in the ash bodies is generally so good looking you won't want to hide it with an opaque paint anyway!

All tools, stains, clearcoats and safety equipment is provided, just bring your imagination and your desire to rock!

All of the kits come with everything required to build a complete guitar. Andy will supply the finishes and tools.
