Spend a day making a fully functioning instrument from scratch! You will build a three-string slide guitar. This has no physical frets and uses a slide to alter the tuning. If you haven’t played this style before, don’t worry I’ll also teach you the basics!

What you will do:

  • Make everything by hand (with maybe a couple of power tools)
  • Make a pine and plywood sound box,
  • Add a hardwood neck,
  • Glue on and mark out a fretboard,
  • Solder and install a pickup.
  • Install tuners.
  • Decorate the box if time permits.
  • String it up and learn to play!

This is a beginners level of course; so don’t worry if you haven’t done any woodwork for a while (or ever!)
