 " Fletcher guitars building course is a great experience - one on one time with a knowledgeable luthier to guide you to build your first electric guitar. 
If you've always wanted to build your own guitar but don't know where to start, look no further. Highly recommended "

Testimonial – Carey McConnell
"I recently completed the Fletcher Guitar Building course and would like to take the opportunity to thank David and recommend it to anyone who is considering undertaking the course. The course provides the opportunity to learn from a truly gifted luthier and to walk away at the end of the week with a beautiful handcrafted instrument. I have been playing guitar for 43 years and the instrument that David helped me produce is the best I have ever played.
The other aspect of the course that made it so enjoyable was how comfortable David makes you feel. I felt completely at home during the build and was amazed at how freely he shared his knowledge and experience.
Thanks again David for the best week I have had for years"

Testimonial - Fraser Nightingale
"Recently I completed a special custom 1 on 1 course at Fletcher Handcrafted Guitars. My time with David was one of the most joyous experiences that I have had in years. Over the course of a week, we created a piece of true craftsmanship. It plays, looks and feels better than all my other guitars. It was such a surreal sight to see my dream guitar transform from a drawing into the real thing. David is extremely knowledgeable and patient, he truly made my first guitar building experience an absolute pleasure. I would definitely fly back to do another course without hesitation.
Thank you once again David."
