Binford Luthiery is proud to present its own school of guitar luthiery. Recognising a shortage of comprehensive and high quality guitar luthiery courses in New Zealand, Binford Luthiery has established Guitar Buildshop as the preeminent solution to that need. The school is in response to the many inquiries we receive from guitarists wanting to learn the craft of luthiery.
Guitar Buildshop is now in the early stages of development and currently has vacancies in its evening courses for building an acoustic or electric guitar. As the school grows, we will extend our courses to encompass a fulltime, full year's master's course in guitar luthiery, earmarked to commence early 2017. All tuition will be carried out personally by Trevor Binford.
We welcome any enquiries about Guitar Buildshop and most of all we want to know what you want from a school of guitar luthiery. Please send us any enquiries or suggestions using the contact form on the right. Stay tuned as we prepare to launch Guitar Buildshop's own website soon.
