My eldest grandson was picking up his Tanglewood Evolution tonight, and expressed an interest in learning to work on guitars. We discussed his options. I suggested picking up a cheap Squier, and we would start from there. He, however, is more ambitious, and with my tutorage, wants to build a custom guitar. He fancies a Telecaster style. We are going to sit down and choose what he wants to build, then he can start to purchase the necessary parts. We may go down the Wudtone route, so I will be looking for advice if we do. I will need to read through the earlier build threads here, to refresh my old brain.
I told him I have all the tools we will need and if he wants to inherit them he will need to serve his apprenticeship first!
Looking forward to building again - without the cost!
