Learn what it takes to build a guitar with Roberto Venn

More from this show

Roberto Venn has been teaching future guitar makers for more than 40 years and is the longest running guitar making school in North America. The school was started by John Roberts after an adventurous trip in the jungles of Nicaragua led him to some rosewood and mahogany which he later sent to Phoenix – building his first guitar. Students have traveled from every continent except Antarctica to attend this program. We’ll show you the skilled craftsmanship that goes into creating a guitar and how the school is keeping this art form alive. Learn more about his programs at https://roberto-venn.com/ .
