The Great Guitar Build-off

Stephan Schauer

£0.00 Sold out
Tax included.

Hello everyone, I am a novice in the guitar building world and a lifelong mediocre guitar and bass player from Warzburg, Germany.
I started my journey/rabbit hole with a wish to do a fretwork on my chinese stratocaster guitar myself in order to save a cent or two, watched Ben's video about that, bought some tools in the hardware store that would help me do it. After that I watched some more videos and bought some more tools and then more videos and more tools and even more videos and even more tools...
And just like that, after about a 'grand' worth of tools and an unbeatable will I have conquered our cellar and made a workshop out of it which was the birthplace of my very first kit- and then scratch build. Now with the possibility provided by the awesome and amazing Great Guitar Build Off 2021 I am saddling my horse, polishing my armor and sharpening my plane and riding into the sunset toward my workshop where I shall make a beautiful instrument as a part of this competition or I shall meet my demise. (read with epic narrator voice)

Thank you all for making this happen!

Best regards
Stephan Schauer
