Why not teach yourself? Buy some good books on the topic and go at it! Thats what I did 20 odd years ago. And there is a lot more stuff now (books, dvd's etc) available now.imbackagain2 said:Yeah but I would much rather build a guitar that I enjoy playing.
Guitar building is not "hard" its just a set of skills you need to develop and even if you take a course and build a single guitar it will take MANY more to develop into a decent builder IMO.
The schooling is just the start - to give you a good base from which to begin the real learning process. You can only learn by doing...
