With this Electric Trees beginners course, you will build a bolt on neck style of guitar (telecaster) and it is recommended for first time builders. You’ll have the opportunity to build your own guitar from scratch, with Martin’s supervision. A tulip wood body, a maple neck, a maple or ebony fretboard and standard hardware is included in the price as standard. We stock a wide variety of woods and hardware and these are also available to all students but are slightly more expensive than those included in the standard package (ash, alder, sepele). You will be working from a full-scale technical drawing that will consist of all the measurements that you’ll require.

  • Understand how your guitar is constructed
  • Have hands-on experience of every stage in the guitar building process
