The Perfect Christmas Present for Guitar Fans-

If you're a guitar fan who's after more than just a stockingfiller this Christmas, look no further than a three-day electricguitar building course from Guitar Tech Courses, a guitar workshopand studio based in Winchelsea, East Sussex.

James Collins, an experienced guitar maker and repairer(luthier) who has worked in the music industry for many years,provides tailored courses for guitar enthusiasts, enabling them tobuild their very own customisable Stratocaster-style orTelecaster-style electric guitar in just three days.

Unlike other guitar building courses, each student is providedwith the highest quality ready-made guitar parts, so nowoodworking, design or even DIY skills are needed!

Guitar lovers can vary the colour, style and type of many of theguitar's components, creating their own unique instrument.

The courses are held in James' studio in Winchelsea Beach, EastSussex, and cost from £799. The fee includes all guitar parts andcomponents, professional tools and course materials.

Class sizes are kept deliberately small: a maximum of threestudents per group, so that James can provide individually tailoredsupervision and tuition.

Students will come home from the course with a completeunderstanding of the guitar building process, as well as abeautifully made guitar.

The courses are open to everyone from complete beginners toseasoned enthusiasts, guitar technicians and professionals. There'sno upper or lower age limit for the courses, either.

Colin Smith from Iver received a guitar-building course as a50th birthday present. He said:

 "I had a proper play with my new guitar once I gotback home - I am delighted with it. It is better than my otherguitars (two Stratocasters) which is a great testament to yourtuition."

He added:

"I enjoyed every minute of the course, and I now have a properunderstanding of my instrument, valuable skills andknow-how."

At the end of the course, you'll return home with your very owncustom-made and signed electric guitar, case and certificate.
