Axebuilder Guitar Workshop
From Queen guitarist, Brian May, to some of the earliest blues musicians in America like Robert Johnson, many of the most talented guitarists in history have designed and built their own guitars. You’re invited to learn how to do the same with the help of Reid Shigemura, owner of Ho’okani Music Company, during a special electric guitar-building workshop! With over 15 years of experience in building and repairing musical instruments, he will be sharing his knowledge, skills, and resources with makers attending this six-hour workshop. You’ll also learn basic care and maintenance as well as an understanding about the different parts and functions of the instrument. This is a class designed for beginners and all kits including all parts will be provided. No experience is required and this workshop is designed to offer each student a completed "Strat style" electric guitar in one afternoon.
