How It’s Made: Electric Guitars

by | Dec 5, 2013 | Building, Good Finds

From what I gather, “How It’s Made” is a regular show on the Discovery channel that is kind of like Mister Rogers, but with fewer puppets.  At some point, they did a trip to Godin to show how electric guitars are made.  It’s worth watching if you’re unfamiliar with the process in production facilities.  What’s most interesting, to me at least, is that a somewhat larger operation like Godin does things basically the same way as a really tiny boutique shop with guitars fetching 5x the price.  Quality of materials, better fit/finish and fancier stains are what you’re largely paying for.

Sorry for the low-def video.  I would guess this could get taken down at any moment…
