Synopsis

Every guitarist dreams of owning a superb quality custom-made instrument, but the cost of this is most often prohibitive. Building your own guitar is an extremely rewarding and satisfying way of realising your ambition without making a huge financial outlay. Complete with information on design, wood selection, hardware, tools and techniques, it allows you to select every element to create your own unique personalised instrument, and full size plans are included for ease of use. All aspects of construction are explained in detail, with step-by-step colour photographs, diagrams and clear instructions for each procedure. With professional tips from a master luthier, this comprehensive book takes the mystery out of guitar making.

With a background as a Grade A toolmaker, and a professional engineer, he combines traditional elements with new design techniques to create beautiful guitars from the best materials available.
