My Secret Weapon & How This Course Can Help You
“How to make an elevated fingerboard guitar is an online luthier course designed to help you incorporate one of my favorite design elements into your next steel string or classical guitar with less stress, less mistakes, and better results.

I started using the elevated fingerboard design on my guitars over 15 years ago and I loved it so much that I still use it today on every guitar I make. The elevated fingerboard design element is one of my secret weapons for creating guitars that players love and that I love to build. It took years of sometimes painful experimentation to arrive at my current system, design approach, and workflow – all of which I share with you in this new guitar making course.

Over the years I have discovered that when implemented properly, the elevated fingerboard design can result in several key advantages such as; better upper fret access, better setup and playability, and even a more beautiful and sweet tone.

That is great for my clients and the players who use my guitars, but here’s another really cool thing, using this system for the elevated fingerboard design also makes my job as a luthier easier too.

The methods and techniques I share in this course allow me (and will allow you) to stress less and enjoy the experience of creating my guitars more, because my systems are designed in a way that helps to ensure that the neck angles, setup and bridge saddle height are perfect every time. Even if a small mistake is made, the systems you will learn are designed in a way to help you fix them and still have flawless results.

I made this online luthier course because I want you to experience how fun and rewarding this is for yourself (and for the players who use your guitars) without the painful years of trial and error as you incorporate the elevated fingerboard guitar design element into your next guitar!” – Tom Bills
