The Project Electric Guitar Membership

Clear, Convenient & Practical Information You Can Use To Build Better Guitars

 

This website, Project Electric Guitar (PEG), has been growing steadily during the last eight months and I will be taking it to a new level soon. What am I talking about?

I'm planning to create an add-on "members" area within the PEG website. What will this look like exactly? I don't know yet, I'll be asking for your help in a few weeks to help me out with it... more to come later.

 

Courses, Plans, Tutorials, PDFs, 

Lessons, Interviews, Book & Tool Reviews,

Innovative Jigs, Templates, And A Community

 

I'm excited about the "membership" model because I'm very attracted to the idea of a value exchange relationship where I give you clear, convenient and practical content, without limits, on an ongoing manner, for you to build better guitars. Or in many cases, help you to start your first guitar.

You may be thinking, "but there's plenty of free information on the Internet already". Yes that's true, but there's also a problem of "overwhelm" with this free content, and even with some paid membership guilds.

 

The content will be organized into four categories:

Planning & Design (PD)

How To's (HT)

Jigs & Templates (JT)

Shop Tools (ST)

  1. Dont know if Im qualified to comment, but I have made clavichords, lute, celtic harp. I would like to see something for the beginner on sharpening tools and perhaps for making some hand tools such as planes. Many people dont realise for example that polishing the back of a blade and removing any pits is just as important as producing a good bevel. Hand tools are simple, but making them work really well took me half a lifetime. Keep up the good work, we need happy craftsmen first and competent ones as a consequence

  2. let me know how things go – if timing is right I might join… I’m not planning to go pro or build for anyone else – just want to make one for myself since I no longer can afford to buy what I’d like. and I’ve been saving wood for years and need a challenging project to put it to good use.
