This 5 1/2 week intensive course brings students through the process of hand-crafting their own guitar. Students start with rough-sawn lumber and learn the entire process including how to shape and manipulate sound, as well as the science behind it all. Each student goes home with a high-quality instrument which they crafted with their own hands and the knowledge to kickstart their guitar making career. Whether you are just planning on building yourself a guitar or you are looking to dive deep into the nitty gritty, this course is just for you! Courses are offered on the basis of demand, so get in touch if you are interested or if you would like to be added to the mailing list to hear about future courses.

     "In 2019 I took the Treehouse Guitars guitar building course and it was one of the most special experiences of my life. For 5 weeks, you attend his shop in a serene and beautiful location on St. Joe's Island and Zach takes you step by step through the process of a quality build. Zach is very knowledgeable and skilled in his craft and his approach to teaching is patient and encouraging.  This course will give you more confidence in working with your hands and you will leave with two friends for life (Zach and your guitar)."
