Make an Electric Guitar Using the CNC Router
Build a classic Fender-style electric guitar using modern digital design tools and BARN’s CNC router
In this five-session class, you will start with traditional paper plans of a guitar body. You will get an introduction to Computer-Assisted Design (CAD) using Fusion 360. Then you will use those skills to create a 3D model of the guitar using the printed plans for guidance. You will use Computer-Assisted Manufacturing (CAM) features to choose tools and tool paths to make the guitar body on a 3-axis CNC router.
You will simulate creating your guitar on the computer, but to ensure that you end up with a playable instrument, the class will then go through the same processes using a proven design: a version of a Fender Telecaster Thinline (semi-hollow) guitar.
Next, we will discuss tonewood and pickup choices. You will learn how traditional luthiers make their design choices.
Finally, we will cut guitar bodies on the CNC router with locally-sourced wood. You'll also use the drill press, router table, and Festool random-orbit sander. as you complete your guitar.
