Build your own Electric Guitar

Build your Own Guitar-ONLINE is an amazing, comprehensive tutorial.  Mark takes you through every detail in the making of an electric guitar.  He includes the design course and then takes you step by step through the tools you need (not as many as you think), choosing wood, safety, making jigs and patterns, and all the way through the woodwork bits and on to the hardware and wiring.

In addition to all this, you have access to Mark to get any questions you have about the build answered.  Once you’ve signed up you can ask Mark questions directly or use the online community to help you.
