Guitar Building School & Workshop
ARC Guitar specializes in one-to-one instruction in the art, science, and craft of constructing high-quality, hand crafted guitars.
Depending upon a student's schedule and the hours invested, making a guitar can take anywhere from three weeks to over a year. Recognizing that individuals often must negotiate around busy work schedules, ARC Guitar prides itself on its flexibility accommodating its student's' schedules, from only a few hours a week to nearly full time. The studio is open five days a week, and scheduling is simple.

Unique Hands-On Experience
The process of building a guitar begins with the student choosing the raw materials with which he/she will be working (exotic woods, glues, mother of pearl inlay, etc.) and continues by immersing the student in the joys and (sometimes) trials of real-life wood-working, developing skills and problem solving techniques along the way.
This approach emphasizes hands-on experience-- those without prior shop or wood working skills are welcome.
