Build Your Own Acoustic Guitar by Andy Manson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is a book for dreamers, be they guitar players, school or college woodworkers, amateurs or hobbyists. It opens the door for the uninitiated, and will enable anyone with the will, the patience and some basic woodworking skills to build a musical instrument of which to be proud - and one that will stand critical comparison with all but the most expensive store-bought models. Clear instructions - accompanied by working drawings, comprehensive stage-by-stage photographs and full-size plans - describe each step of the way, drawing on the 30-year experience of a master luthier to facilitate a successful result, even in the face of the inevitable mistakes and crises. Reference to the history of guitarmaking and the introduction of alternative methods, designs and ways of personalizing the instrument will encourage the aspiring maker to create his dream instrument.
