Guitar Building Courses by DJS Guitars have been designed to guide people through the art of electric, acoustic and bass guitar making. Classes are tailored to meet the needs of students in our safe and fully equipped workshop located in the eastern suburb of Croydon, Melbourne.

Our students make instruments from raw materials, not kit projects. We explain and perform demonstrations for every process through the construction. Students get to work through their projects at their own pace in a friendly environment, learning skills that replicate the early years of guitar and bass making. We don’t use CNC other than fretboard inlay work.

Take Your Time

Unlike many courses, our students are given time to finish their instruments in nitrocellulose lacquer. In finishing off their instruments the students also learn how to set up the instrument, including fretwork and wiring.

Small Class sizes

Class sizes are kept to a maximum of 6 students to 1 teacher and as a result students get immediate attention and direction, allowing the student to progress quickly and safely through their build.
