Guitar building course Non-Stop:
Build your own guitar full-time under the supervision of Ramon Riemersma. What is needed to make your own handmade guitar? And which molds do I need? All tricks and tricks are well covered in this course.
We start with the following topics:
- Humidity and temperature of the building process.
- How do you recognize good sound wood.
- Acts during the construction process.
- Which parts influence the sound of an instrument.
In these lessons you will be personally guided during the construction of your guitar. The big advantage is that you are alone and receive private lessons.
Non-stop consecutively continue building until the guitar is ready (except Saturday and Sunday). The intention is to build at least 4 to 5 days per week until you have finished your guitar. The total number of days needed to build the guitar is around 20 to 22 days. This does not apply to all students, and depends on how fast someone is or how ‘luxury’ becomes the guitar.
The costs for building your own guitar Non-Stop are € 2499, – excluding VAT and material costs.
You can choose the materials and wood types yourself if it does not affect the sound. The material can also be supplied by Riemersma Guitars at an advantageous rate. The price of the wood can vary a lot but starts at around € 250,- to € 400,- for a complete guitar. You are also free to choose which model guitar you want to make. Think of classic or flamenco, OM-steelstring, 00-steelstring or dreadnought.
Coffee and tea are always ready for you! And during the break a nice lunch is provided.
Also ask about the possibilities for overnight stays in the area.
