Loucin Guitar Co. Building Course

Loucin Guitar Co. offers an intensive course of instruction in acoustic guitar building. Students will learn every aspect of the process from start to finish and will build their very own guitar during the course. We provide a fully equipped workshop full of tools, forms, moulds and jigs.

Courses run all year long (except July & August), but there is limited space, so make sure to book now. You will work along side Garren who will teach you the principles of guitar making. You will follow the Loucin guitar building process step-by-step. After successful completion of the course,  you will have a guitar made for you, by you – how cool is that?  ”The Ultimate Souvenir”.
