Testimonials

“I recently purchased a beautiful fingerboard from you and now I am thinking of grabbing fretwire from you as well. Unfortunately I'm cheap and lazy and find myself here asking if it is possible to pay more to have your fretwire radiused before it is sent? You guys would be the coolest ever. No matter what the outcome, I will be sending more business your way from here in Maine. Hoping for good news! Thank you!"

Build a Steel String Guitar, Robbie O’Brien

SKU: BM62

MEDIABuildASteelStringGuitarRobertOBrienBM62at500We were surprised and delighted when luthier Robert O’Brien, who at that time was an instructor at Colorado’s Red Rocks Community College, informed us that he had been having his students order our kits and that he was making an instructional DVD based on them. Building from our standard (unserviced) kits, O’Brien thoughtfully chose to use a slide show format creating more than 1400 photos and 3 ½ hours of audio for each DVD, rather than a video format. This enables him to document every step of the building process on a single, affordable DVD disc. 

Clear, comprehensive and fun to watch, Robert O'Brien's DVDs are among the very best guitar-building instructions we’ve come across and we are now including them in most of our guitar kits. This steel string DVD (BM62) emphasizes the tools of a smaller shop and is included with our steel string kits.
