CTC Hosts Adult Guitar Building Class

Hopkins County Career and Technology Center will host a guitar building class for adults in theEric Anderson displays guitar during summer workshop manufacturing department this fall. The class is an opportunity for adults to build their own electric guitar, while supporting future STEM Guitar students in our high schools.

“The cool thing about it is that for every adult who takes the class, it’s going to pay for a kid in the future,” said teacher Eric Anderson. CTC students build a guitar in the Advanced Technology Applications class that meets third trimester.

The adult class will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30-9 p.m. The first class is Oct. 16, and it will end on Nov. 15. There is room for up to 16 students.

The cost is $650, including guitar kit, consumables, instruction and shop time, or $400 if you choose to purchase your kit separately from the class. The following STEM Guitar Signature Series paintable and stainable kits are available:  Wave Style, Single Cut, Double Cut, Flame, Surf Style, and Axe Body.

“This would give somebody a chance to build one for a Christmas present, or build one for themselves,” Anderson said. “This is really about fun. It’s a lot of work, but it’s fun to get to do it.”
