    Aug 2023. Wonderful experience building the P bass. Nick’s workshop is beautifully laid out with all the tools you could want. Nick answered all my practical and theoretical questions with clarity. He is very skilled and experienced so was able to easily solve all the problems we had. The atmosphere is calm and quiet yet by the end we had completed numerous tasks and learned so much. As an added bonus we had a family of kangaroos visit us outside the workshop at the end of each day.

    I built a strong, true sounding, honest-up-the-neck bass guitar.
    The course was delivered with generosity and expertise.
    Standing at a work table with two others building their own guitars, with all the tools needed within reach, and making pieces of wood transform into a beautiful guitar is a gift I am really pleased I gave myself. It was a stunning thing to do.

      Thanks for your review Christopher. I am really glad you enjoyed the course and I hope you get lots of use out of your new bass, jamming with the family.

    Having had no real experience playing guitar, let alone building one, I wasn’t sure how I would go jumping straight in to a course like this, however I knew very quickly that I was in good hands under Nick’s guidance.

    Nick worked through all aspects of the build in a clear and concise manner, and his attention to detail was faultless. As a complete newbie to guitars I certainly felt that learning about the technical aspects of a build really gave me an appreciation for this instrument that I’m not sure I would have gotten had I just picked one up and started playing.

    I now have a beautiful bass guitar that I am very much enjoying learning how to play. I couldn’t recommend this course highly enough.
