Want to Learn How to Build a Guitar From Scratch? Watch These Videos!

A lot of manufacturers talk about “hand-built” guitars, and for some of them, they mean it. Others use machines to do most of the shaping, and then finish by hand. There’s nothing wrong with that, as the computers can make your guitar exactly the same way every single time, and it saves a lot of time.

But this guy, Ben Crowe, the owner and until very recently, only employee of Crimson Guitars, actually does everything by hand. No automated cutting machines, no computer-aided shaping or routing. It takes him longer, since he’s the only person there, but the finished product looks amazing! And he’s got some wicked head tats, too. If you don’t want to spend the time, you can have him do it!

Check out these videos, as Ben takes you step-by-step through the process of building a guitar, and he explains everything he’s doing. I’m currently looking for some cool wood to start cutting on…my house is going to be a mess.
