Welcome to Carson Crickmore School of Guitar Making 


From 1st June 30th 016 I will be running a Master Classes in Guitar Making that runs for 10 days in total, the focus on this Master Class is the Guitar itself but as importantly all the jigs and proccesses that go into making these instruments will be employed to complete the instrument on time.

As with any production in Guitar Making there is a focus on efficiency and accuracy .. in this current course offering to be able to complete a Guitar in 10 days requires a consolidation of these proccess.

A small Master class was run earlier this year with excellent results ... to further the development in this area I am keen to trial 4 students who are interested in building a guitar of very high quality..
