Now this is what we call a pretty cool school project. A high school in Monroe, North Carolina had its students make their own instruments for a senior class art project. One of the students, Abby Warner, decided that she would build her own guitar…and then decided to learn how to play it!
“I designed my guitar; I crafted it,” said Abby Warner. “It’s like my baby.” The project started last September and other than a final polish, was finished the week of graduation.
“Building a guitar is only a bit harder than learning to play one, from my first day’s experience,” she said. “It’s a ton of work, a lot of practice, and a lot of listening to those who came before you in reference to both building and learning to play guitar.”
