GUITAR BUILDING INSTRUCTION
After numerous requests from others to teach guitar building, John
Ressler began teaching the guitar building craft at his home
workshop. This eventually led to requests to teach guitar building
workshops throughout the country. His passion for learning and
passing on his knowledge to others has led him to teach Guitar
Building classes at the Marc Adams School of Woodworking as
well as occasional workshops at his home workshop.
"I have been woodworking and playing guitar
most of my life. I'd often thought about combining interests and
building a guitar. I even started building one many years ago, but
ran into problems I didn't know how to solve. When I finally signed
up for a class with John, it all came together. It was the best week
I've ever spent and the instrument I came away with was better than
I'd imagined it could have been. To say I was inspired is an
understatement. Thank you John."
"Over the years I have taken a lot of
woodworking courses from schools and instructors all over North
America. Johnís courses on Making an Acoustic Guitar and Making a
Pickiní Stick are the two of the best courses Iíve ever taken.
I was surprised and impressed with the quality of the instruments
leaving Johnís classes. He prepares more thoroughly than any
instructor Iíve ever seen and in my opinion that is directly related
to the outcome of student projects. Every step is outlined and
planned so that every student will be successful. Johnís
extensive knowledge and experience and his easygoing teaching style
made it a pleasure to be in his classes. Iím looking forward to my
next class with John!"
ABOUT JOHN RESSLER
John Resslerís passion for building fine custom built guitars and
other steel stringed instruments was a natural progression of a
lifetime of woodworking starting with his own shop on the family
farm as a young boy. A stair builder by trade, he has spent much of
his life designing and building custom stairs, furniture and one of
a kind woodworking projects. Always curious, John was drawn to
building custom guitars, as well as other folk instruments, which
fulfills the challenges of fine woodworking, precision joinery and
music all in one package.
