About Guitar Build Workshop
Come join us for a workshop where we’ll teach you the art of guitar building. Our staff has a combined 75 years experience in instrument design and manufacturing. This is a recreational approach to a truly unique Nashville experience in the heart of Music City at our studio in Historic Germantown. Join us for the full 8-hour workshop where you build the guitar from start to finish and take home the same day, or attend our finishing workshop where you create the finish, choose the hardware and we'll assemble it. The finishing workshop is 2.5 hours and once assembled we'll ship direct to you. No previous woodworking experience is needed nor do you have to know how to play guitar. Bring nothing but comfortable “working” clothes and a pair of closed toed shoes, we provide all tools and safety gear. The cost is $650. Reserve now for $50 (Balance payable day of workshop.)

What a great day's experience! Josh took us through the steps needed to finish a guitar body then to make that body into a finished guitar for us to take home. Additionally, Josh's working in the guitar industry and the stories he shared were amazing and, for a self described quit guy, his emceeing the workshop was better than the Oscars.

This is a MUST do item for guitar folks when in Nashville! Josh is amazing and is infinitely patient, talented and personable! BEST time my son and I have had in a while. I was a mere shop fly but the conversation and banter were gold! Another OG from Boston was the only other participant and he was a riot as well! Near 1:1 attention with “The Master” during the build. My boy is jacked about his new shredder! Can’t really say enough about what a good take this activity is! Ask Josh about “the doll” and about some of the characters that have visited the shop over the last decade! Just get here!

My 14 year old daughter who is obsessed with music and her guitar, along with my 18 year nephew attended the Guitar Build Workshop. Josh was amazing with them. He’s fun, friendly and knowledgeable. He helped them make the most amazing, solid and gorgeous guitars. The idea of making and then playing your very own guitar was such an amazing experience they couldn’t wipe their smiles off their faces. Thanks Josh! They’re still talking about it. My 14 year old is currently back home in Canada playing her heart out in the basement. Sounds amazing too!
