Casual Weekly Guitar Making Classes (click for details)
2 Week Intensive Courses (click for details)
Students who attend the Gold Coast Guitar Making School are personally guided through each and every process during the course. There are no pre-prepared or pre-assembled parts and we take the time to demonstrate both traditional and modern methods of acoustic guitar making and 'demystify' some of the secrets of building exceptional handmade guitars!
Our approach is somewhat unique in the sense that we are also full time acoustic guitar makers who produce world class custom acoustic guitars for the Australian and International market! The Gold Coast Guitar Making School is located in Fenech Guitars purpose built workshop and students who attend our courses will gain unprecedented access to all our workshop has to offer, including;
- fully air conditioned and humidity controlled work spaces with air filtration and dust extraction on all machinery
- seeing and choosing from our vast selection of master grade tonewoods
- seeing and using traditional and modern jig's for the accurate construction of acoustic guitars
- ability to choose from Fenech Guitars custom guitar shapes and designs
- choosing from any number of comfortable workbenches available
- witnessing a range of custom Fenech Guitars being handmade within the workshop by resident guitar makers, not to mention test driving a few.
- experiencing a safe, friendly and collaborative environment where guitar makers and students both past and present come to meet, exchange ideas and of course play music!
There are no prior skills required to attend our classes and we limit our class numbers to ensure that our students take home a high quality handmade custom guitar.
