Every one will leave the class with a playable guitar. Because of time constraints finishing the guitar with lacquer will not be possible. I will spend part of one day discussing and demonstrating various finishes. To completely lacquer a guitar takes three to five weeks, most of it waiting for something to dry or cure. After the final coat of lacquer alone there is a two to three week cure time.

A materials list and list of suppliers will be emailed or mailed upon registration (materials can be shipped directly to me) to be stored in a humidity & temperature controlled environment until class.
