Guitars are seldom made in the USA nowadays, since most guitar manufacturers have moved their factories over to the far-east, like China and Korea. The ones that still are made in the US, like Gibson, are out of reach for most guitarists.

Here is an interesting video on how guitars are made in China, enjoy:

There is no lesson to be learned from this video, it's just interesting to see the hand-made mass production work being carried out on hundreds, if not thousands of guitars. It's also interesting to see that all of the guitar are still hand-made, I would have thought that most of the processes we see on the video would have been mechanized nowadays.

I thought it would be interesting for everybody to see the journey a few of my online students took while learning to play the guitar on my site. Sort of mini case studies on how your peers get started on the guitar.

As you know, I provide personal support to all free and premium members on my site, and I've seen many students who have really advanced their skills in the time they've been a member. I asked 5 of them if they would answer a few questions for me, a case study on learning guitar, if you will.

I asked them a lot of questions, and will show you the most interesting bits below. I hope these guitar learning case studies will be an interesting read for many of you, and will motivate you to keep at it. 2 of them asked me not to post their picture, so I thought I would just post an image of everyone's guitar instead 🙂
