Learning guitar making definitely makes you appreciate the complexity and difficulty behind the art. I love my guitar, and I have a connection to it like no other. I’m so grateful for Behrad’s expertise helping me create an instrument I will cherish and play my whole life. Thank you so much Behrad!



I was really impressed with Behrad’s knowledge, patience, and ability to clearly communicate the complexities of building a guitar. It was a wonderful experience to see the transformation from raw wood into an expressive instrument built with my own two hands.
