It's for an apprenticeship building acoustic guitars.

The only problem is, I have no experience at all, and I will only really have a couple of days to prove myself.

I need to learn as much about woods/guitars by monday.

Any suggestions!?

Thats why its an apprenticeship, they teach you all you need to know, what did Luke know of the force before Obi Wan made him his apprentice?

+1 you don't have to know much about it, you just have to show a keen intrest in guitar building, and cleaning up shop floors.

Yeah but he's looking for someone who can do the job quickly.
He told me he will know if he's going to keep me on within the first 3 days...
And he didnt seem too impressed when I couldnt name types of wood he was showing me

If he expects you to already know how to build a guitar then it's not really much of an apprenticeship.

An apprenticeship is designed to teach you a skill by putting in the work place using that skill.

key word here being TEACH

Check out some of the books in the GB&C Starter Pack v.1 Also, check out the Central Hub sticky and find the Ultimate Resource Thread. There's a lot of good info there.

D-bag. You're not gonna learn everything in under a week.

Although I congratulate you on getting the interview or whatever, and I'll wish ya luck. It's true that they are there to help you- but they can't be bothered with teaching you how to use a plane or a bandsaw.I hope you have a good amount of woodworking experience.
Also, just because they're your teacher doesn't mean that you can waltz right in not knowing what you're doing. That's like walking in to a Calculus B/C class when you haven't taken AlgebraII yet. (That was for whoever said that they would teach you, by the way. Not particularly for you)
Anyway, the best of luck to you; get some practice in with neck carving.

Have a Sizzlin' Day,
AJ

What hes probably looking for is your determination. Places always try to put a little fear in the new guy to see if they run away. Just do a bunch of research, do your best, and if you show them that this is what you want to do, then hopefully they'll keep you.

Good luck!
