My Daughter Built a Guitar in Wood Shop
Note Before Introduction
There was another, more complete version of this entire article that I somehow managed to overwrite. That sucks. The version that's here now is one of the early drafts. At some point in the past couple of months, I made an update to this page, and uploaded a draft version. Man, I hate it when that happens. I should really know better... Anyway, I will correct this article one day when I have time. In the meantime, enjoy this early draft. It still tells the story - mostly in picture form.
This is not a misleading headline at all. She actually build a mockup of a B.C. Rich Avenge. From scratch. In woodshop.

He was so taken by the experience that he brought the idea to the school board and got them to agree with the idea. That being, to have classes build a complete instruments during the course of an entire school year. Not from a kit, mind you. From raw scraps of wood. The only purchased items were the metal and electronics.
