How Electric Guitars Are Made Youtube

Friday, September 12th, 2008 | Electric Guitar, Guitar making | No Comments

I thought it would be a good idea to post about this youtube video on how electric guitars are made, this video was put together by the Godin Guitar Company.  Lots of guitar players are not overly familiar with the process, it’s worthwhile getting a bit of an understanding how it all works.

Over the years I have personally built a handful of guitars, both under the guidance of others and also by myself from scratch.  One major difference between building acoustics and electrics is that building an electric for me was much more industrial than an acoustic.  In the initial stages of building an acoustic it is very fine work done with hand tools, wheras when I built an electric it was more sensible to use electronic tools to save time and in the finishing stages, hand tools were introduced to do the finer tasks that required greater precision.  

A number of techniques used here in this electric guitar construction video are also relevant for acoustic guitar.  Keep in mind that not all luthiers will use the same procedures.  Do yourself a favour, if you can get into a guitar workshop every now and then to get an idea how certain things are done it is well worth the visit, some simple setup tasks can easily done by the individual and knowing how to fine tune your instrument can be a great advantage.
