A Singapore based academy for enthusiasts to learn skills in handcrafting strings instruments and grow appreciation in craftsmanship
The class helped me to understand the structure of the guitar, learning to build it step by step carefully, taking note of the crucial aspects in the making, the tone and the looks.
The overarching concept shared during Adam’s class, that is the most insightful to me, is the pursuit of the balance between flexibility and stiffness which can potentially produce a responsive guitar.
Above all, the guitar making class is really an exceptional experience that I will remember for the rest of my life.
