Guitar making from scratch

A group of students at Alexander Galt high school in Sherbrooke have added a new skill to their répertoire: guitar making. Last year, teacher JF Coley worked with a group of students to create their own electric guitars from scratch. Now, the final products will hit the auction block to raise money in memory of a former teacher at the school. The CBC's Sarah Rogers set out to meet with the artists and the project's instigator.
