There is a new offering as part of our Electric Guitar Building certificate which is a one credit Electric Design course. Historically the design and blueprinting process started in the spring semester Electric Construction course which would take at least two full class days. That class time becomes incredibly valuable toward the end of the seven week building process. By creating the fall Electric Design course students have more time to plan what they'd like to build, complete the design process and have a working drawing to help them choose the correct material sizes to order for spring. Not only that, but it will save all of the students valuable time in the actual building process.
|Here is a design nearing completion. The necessary dimensions are listed so someone can get the answer they're looking for without ever needing to measure the drawing.|
|This years students have the advantage of knowing all of the dimensions before they need to order wood for the build. Making sure the material is over-sized enough will likely avoid some improvisational solution during construction.|
|Here is the guitar from the drawing coming together. This instrument was built in an early school year.|
Students in our diploma program that do not plan on building an electric guitar in spring are also welcome in the fall Electric Design class. Taking the class would help them understand electric guitars if they are unfamiliar with them which very well might help them as they enter a real world shop setting.
