Study with Dwayne King, luthier and owner of The Guitar Corner!
In the "Guitar Repair and Design Courses" we cover practical, safe, efficient techniques; teaching the students how to develop a logical approach in dealing with all of the various members of the guitar family. We always cover a wide range of topics and techniques above and beyond the designated curriculum. The design and fabrication of simple templates, fretting tools and a few other specialised guitar repair tools are covered. The students are encouraged to "cut to the chase" and "think on their feet", as is so often required, in order to get the job done. When dealing with the multitude of tasks that one faces every day in this field of work; this approach makes the difference; streamlining the process, keeping yourself and your customers happy! This small gathering of students, each bringing guitars to the class; gives everyone the chance to cover an amazing cross-section of Instrument Repair and Design techniques.
The guitar family extrapolates in many directions, 12 string, Arch top, solid body, fretted and fretless basses, nylon string classicals.
This opportunity, for the students to examine and adjust so many different types of guitars, and to observe the idiosyncrasies and "rules of physics" for each member of the guitar family; this is what has made these courses so enduring.
You expand your knowledge and practical "hands on" skills, in a safe and encouraging atmosphere.
