Hello! I am Ian, a beginning luthier from northeast Wisconsin in the U.S. who is interested in guitar construction and repair. At the moment I am taking on small repair jobs and have also built a few scratch and kit guitars. I have learned a lot from watching Bens videos online and am excited to see what is in store with this years build off. For my scratch build I will be building an electric 12 string with a custom single cut body. I decided to go the electric 12 route because I think it would be a good challenge and to my knowledge no one made one last year. I plan to have gold foil pickups and a psychedelic 60s inspired paint job! I am super stoked to be part of this years build off!
