Hello! I’m Ian, I’m a beginning luthier from northeast Wisconsin in the U.S. who is interested in guitar construction and repair. At the moment I am taking on small repair jobs and have also built a few scratch and kit guitars. I’ve learned a lot from watching Ben’s videos online and am excited to see what’s in store with this years build off. For my scratch build I will be building an electric 12 string with a custom single cut body. I decided to go the electric 12 route because I think it would be a good challenge and to my knowledge no one made one last year. I plan to have gold foil pickups and a psychedelic 60’s inspired paint job! I’m super stoked to be bart of this years build off!
