So I've got a DDP (Design Draw Produce) class. We have EVERYTHING I could possibly need to build a guitar and then some. I.E. Planer, Hand planers, Drill Press, Kickass Band saw, Variety of sanders, handtools etc etc etc. How do some of your teachers take to building guitars? And have you been successful with builds. I have the class 2 or 3 times a week depending on how my schedule falls. Just trying to decide and people to give me that last push. Thanks!!!!

Well, I don't have any experience for doing it in school, but I say, if you have all that time to devote, and everything you need, then do it man!

DDP(or as my school calls it DDT) isn't really that type of class. The equipment is all there, but this is normally your introduction to using all the tools and making smaller stuff.

Well why ask UG? Why dont you just go and ask your teachers if its alright?

A lot of builds on here have been done in school, so I'm sure they'll be fine with it.

Its probably a damn good project really considering the amount of planning and design that goes into it, and then the actualy construction is another ball game.

I planned on asking anyways. The only thing I'm nervous about is all the measurements and shet I have to do. Especially for a first build.


Neck through would be easier, right?

I would suggest bolt on for a first build, if you f**k up the neck angle its the easiest to fix, and you can work on the body and neck completely seperatly at all times.

If you plan thoroughly, think everythign through logically, check all the measurements etc before cutting anything you should be fine, as long as you dont rush things a build can be fairly easy (providing you have teachers there to help you with wood work if needed etc)
