Nothing beats the thrill of making and playing a musical instrument you have made yourself and this course offers you just that.

In one day students construct their three string fretless guitar using a box, neck, fretboard and soundboard. Machine heads are added, a piezo pickup and input jack fitted and your guitar is ready for strings. By the end of the day you could be playing that raw bluesy crunchy sound so characteristic of CBG’s. Tuned in an “open” tuning means even beginners can start playing straight away.

NB. this event takes place at Splinter Workshop (Unit 1/17 Barclay St, Marrickville NSW 2204, Australia) Not Factory Theatre.

Ticket price includes all materials to make the guitar.
