Making an acoustic guitar is much easier than you’d think. With basic woodworking skills, a modest work space, and only a few special tools, even an amateur can make an instrument fit for the concert platform with this guide. Fully illustrated instructions guide the builder through the entire creative process from choosing materials for the guitar to stringing and setting up. The guitar created in this book is a steel-stringed cutaway orchestra model with 14 frets to the body joint. This pattern is ideal for the finger style player, providing excellent projection in bass, middle, and treble ranges. Plans are included for the entire instrument as well as detailed drawings of individual parts. This manual comes complete with instructions on how to tune the soundboard, place the frets accurately, and adjust the action for comfortable playing.
