DJ Parsons Guitar Repair School Overview
If you are passionate about guitars and other stringed instruments and have always wanted to pursue the discipline of lutherie, this course will help you become a luthier/guitar tech and assist you in setting up a part or full time shop of your own.
Instruction is one-on-one and geared to your goals, aptitude and availability.
The course is broken down into phases consisting of 5 one-hour sessions.
Enrollment is $500, which will cover Phase 1.
Please bring this and an electric guitar to our initial meeting in case you want to get started.
Phase 1 will cover electric, bass & acoustic setups
Phase 2 will concentrate on building bone nuts & saddles and repair work
Phase 3 will cover guitar electronics and repair work.
Phases 4 & 5 will concentrate on fretwork - removal, radius sanding of fingerboard, measurement & radiusing of new frets, refret, beveling plus level, crown and polish.
Phase 6 will be given over to honing your setup and repair skills & review. We will also cover what's involved in running your own business, repairing and setting up customers' instruments and general tradecraft.
Note: you must be long on patience, be passionate about guitars and other stringed instruments and
have some aptitude with tools & measuring and be willing to make a solid financial and time commitment for this course to work for you. Since there is also a strong homework component to this course, it is important that you have a workspace at home
If you commit to staying with the course for 6 full phases, I will give you a certificate of completion as a Journeyman Luthier, help you get set up in business as a luthier and sponsor you into the New England Luthiers.
