crafting acoustic and electric guitars
The Boatyard Guitar Workshop is a bit different. Rather than build you a guitar, we will teach you everything you need to know to build it yourself. Our highly individual tuition sessions will take you through the whole process from choosing the best woods to finishing and final set-up.  ​
We  pride ourselves on building precision instruments. By  paying attention to the details, the finished guitars are great sounding, beautiful and responsive.
