Electric Guitar and Bass Making

At the Melbourne School of Guitar Making our students make instruments starting with the raw materials and finishing with the knowledge of how to set up their instrument, including fretwork and wiring.


We explain and perform demonstrations for every process through the construction. Students get to work through their projects at their own pace in a friendly environment, learning skills that replicate the early golden years of electric guitar and bass making. Our students are also given time to finish their instruments in nitrocellulose lacquer.


Our class sizes are kept to a maximum of 6 students to 1 teacher and as a result students get immediate attention and direction, allowing the student to progress quickly and safely through their build.
