When I first decided to build my first acoustic guitar from a guitar kit, I knew it was going to be a challenge. Looking back now, though, I realize that I didn’t have a clue what I was getting myself into.
Don’t get me wrong…I am LOVING putting this acoustic guitar together! So far it’s been an amazing experience. However, considering I have little instrument-building experience, I feel like I’m a blind man trying to get through a maze.
That’s why, after only a couple weeks of working on this guitar kit, I solicited the help of my friend Dave Appel, owner of Scanlon Bros Guitars. I realized that I would learn so much more from this experience if I had the assistance of an experienced luthier like Dave instead of fumbling around by myself.
