Assembling a Guitar

Eric Poe – James Buchanan High School
Vocal Music Director

Budget Request: $564.90

I would like to include, as part of the Sound and Lighting class that is offered at James Buchanan High School, an opportunity for students to build an electric guitar. Guitar kits are available that include the necessary parts to make a finished guitar. Students would sand and finish the body, attach the neck, assemble the pick guard, tuners, electronic pickups, volume and tone controls, as well as string and tune the guitar. The finished guitar would be played by music students in performing groups including chorus, Messa Voce, and jazz band.
