“A fun place to learn to build a guitar! It is always very pleasant and you will be provided with lots of coffee and advice. I had absolutely no experience with fine woodworking, but gradually and with a little help I see a beauty slowly appear. I'm already proud of what I have achieved and can hardly wait for the end result!”
