My students at FK Lane High School and Wingate High School in Brooklyn are making electric guitars. You can see them making them here. A few of them are completed, and most are nearly completed. Unfortunately, some of the kids have left the program in the second semester, and the unfinished guitars will have to be finished by new students. The continuing students who have completed their guitars are now starting to make amplifiers. Also, my students at John Adams High in Queens have made square wave oscillators and are nearly done with their two-stringed movable fretted guitars. Their page will be up soon. These guitars were made with one drill, one hand-held rotary tool and one jigsaw. We need more tools (and materials too)! Contact Paul if you can help.
