Carved to Perfection – the Bandsman CT

Doug was one of the first students to put a carve on our Standard Bandsman…having seen our special carve top…he had a picture in his own mind of what he wanted to build

Doug describes his creation

Alder body, mahogany neck with alder veneered headstock, ebony fretboard, 2 Bareknuckle Abraxas humbuckers…22 frets, 4 pots and 2 Cool Knobs [Rothwell] plus switch. Set neck. Finished with a satin spray- beautiful !!    All black hardware – Gotoh 510 bridge, basically Alder and Black !

A carve adds extra time to a build and isn’t possible on a standard BYOF guitar course… but if this shape appeals then get in touch – with little other customisation it may be posssible to make the guitar in one trip- please ask for more information

Build Your First Guitar in 5 Days ?

Whatever your level of inexperience, it is possible to build anything from a basic electric with a few tweaks in 5 days, through to a more customised (even self designed ) instrument on one of our courses – the Build Your First Guitar course runs over 6 consecutive days (which means only ONE trip), and the next course starts  May 1 2015 … we have only one place left… if that’s too soon there are other courses throughout the year.

Whatever guitar you have in mind, we have other courses, in different time frames to suit…
